The Bellflower Friendship Manor Apartment project is an acquisition/ rehabilitation of an existing affordable senior housing development that is located in Bellflower, California. The project is an 8-story, mid-rise building with 144 apartment units that consists of 84 studio units and 60 one-bedroom units (including one manager’s unit that is income restricted). Bellflower Friendship Manor Apartments were constructed in 1973 as a midrise building within one acre of land. The project was designed with the evolving needs of senior residents in mind. The rehabilitation program will address health and safety issues, ADA upgrades, deferred maintenance, and energy efficiency when possible. Various activities are available to Bellflower Friendship Manor residents including health information seminars, regular excursions to local attractions and various craft classes. The preservation and rehabilitation of the property will preserve this community as an affordable project for another 55 years.
