Sunrise Senior Living Update

Bill Pearl

In a June 2 Zoom meeting (previewed in the Beachcomber) representatives of Sunrise Senior Living, a nationwide chain of senior living facilties, provided information about its proposal to build a new two story building on the vacant ELB lot at 3340 Los Coyotes Diagonal (between the closed Ralphs and an exising medical building for a senior assisted living and memory care facility.

Among salient Zoom meeting points:

The Sunrise project won't involve the closed Ralphs, the existing medical building at 3320 LCD or adjacent church properties.  It'll be self-contained on the 3340 LCD parcel with curretly roughly 51 planned surface parking spaces.

Sunrise said it isn't a developer but the operator of high quality assisted living and memory care facilities. (Its website indicates it currently operates faciliies in Seal Beach, La Palma, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Palos Verdes, Placentia, Hermosa Beach, Yorba Linda, Tustin, Playa Vista, San Marino, Culver City, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica among others.)

Sunrise has also clarified an item (not mentioned during the Zoom meeting) regarding a March 24, 2021 closed session of the Long Beach City College Board of Trustees (listed as a conference regarding "3320 and 3340 Los  Coyotes Diagonal and 3325 Palo  Verde  Avenue"  and a potential  buyer -- Los  Coyotes  Redevelop-ment, LLC..."  In a June 3 telephone conversation, Sunrise said it is NOT that firm and whatever is or isn't taking place doesn't involve its proposal for the 3340 LCD parcel.

So what might be pending next door?  Following the closed session, LBCC's Board of Trustees announced that it voted 5-0 with none abstaining to approve the buyer’s [NOT Sunrise] request to amend the purchase and sale agreement to extend the close of escrow until the earlier of: (1) buyer obtains  financing; (2) 45 days after obtaining long-term leases from Radnet and/or WS Property Group or any other entities; or (3) June 30, 2021" and pay the [LBCC] district $30,000 in addition to the purchase price...)
