Anchor Place, developed by Century Housing and syndicated by Wells Fargo, provides 120 units of permanent supportive housing to formerly homeless veterans and low-income families in Long Beach, California. Anchor Place is an addition to the 27-acre Century Villages at Cabrillo community, a former US Navy housing property that on any given night is home to more than 1,500 formerly homeless and vulnerable individuals, families, and veterans. Residents benefit from a collaboration of 30 different nonprofit and government agencies that have convened to pursue collective impact focused on the recovery and transformation of persons and families in need. Anchor Place also incorporates the philosophy of active design, encouraging resident movement up, down and around the development to access amenity spaces, helping residents to feel more connected. Anchor Place is also LEED for Homes Platinum certified.
