In the first public open house Tuesday night to unveil plans for its 11-acre "healthy living" campus in Redondo Beach, officials with the Beach Cities Health District received a chilling welcome to local politics. During a presentation by BCHD Executive Director Tom Bakaly, a man from the crowd suddenly shouted, “When are you going to talk about the project and end the dog and pony show?” Bakaly, thrown off by the remark for a second, continued.
Then came another shot: “If you think this project is going forward without any opposition, you are delusional,” the same man hollered. Later, as Bakaly started to talk about traffic impacts, another man shouted, “We don’t want any more traffic!” After roughly 30 presentations before homeowner associations and community groups, BCHD's first public forum at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center was not immune to nay-sayers.
Traffic impacts Of chief concern among local residents was a proposed 400 units of independent and assisted living space and potential traffic impacts. The overall campus borders Prospect Avenue, Flagler Lane and Beryl Street in Redondo Beach, raising concerns not just with nearby residents but also among those living in Torrance in the neighborhood to the east. A seven-story assisted living facility slated for the north end of the campus toward Beryl Street would replace a sprawling parking lot and be completed by 2020, while the independent living facility on the south end would come later.
Specific traffic impacts will be analyzed in an Environmental Impact Review expected to occur next year. Also of concern is a three-story parking structure with two subterranean levels at the corner of Beryl and Flagler. The ground floor will house the Center for Health and Wellness while the two upper stories will be used for parking with the capability to convert that space in the future to other uses such as medical office space.
Robert London, who lives on the south side of Beryl, said that while the height of the structure was reduced, he is still not satisfied it mitigates concerns about traffic. “I think the building might be too high even as proposed,” London said. “There will be a lot of traffic in my opinion and it’s going to be really tough on the people living nearby.” Waiting list for seniors By adding senior housing, BCHD envisions an all-inclusive experience for older adults, which it terms a "healthy living" campus.
The health district already provides a gym, physical therapy, cancer treatment, medical offices and urgent care by major providers such as Providence Health and Services and UCLA Health. “This is an opportunity for an older adult to have everything they need within walking distance,” said Karianne Lawson, director of lifespan services. The health district cited a market study showing that senior living facilities in the South Bay typically have a three-year waiting list.
Bakaly and the health district said they are responding to a health need as 94 percent of seniors report they want to remain living in their community. The senior population in the area will soon exceed 15,000, he said. Manhattan Beach resident Kate Ogden, who attended the open house, said she was excited to see the plans. Ogden currently lives in a studio apartment and has been on the waiting list at Manhattan Village for the past three years.
“The senior housing in this area is really nonexistent pretty much,” she said. “I think it’s a great idea and I’d love to be a part of it.” While the district formalizes its plans, it will also remodel the existing medical office building that was formerly South Bay Hospital. Without improvements soon, tenants may actually leave, Bakaly said. A leaky roof, exterior issues and problems with the elevator are some of the biggest concerns.
Bakaly said the aging building and sprawling parking lot is out of touch with the organization that promotes healthy lifestyles and conservation. "We’re not walking our talk," he said. "The building doesn’t match who we are." Questions abound Residents on Tuesday also questioned district officials over funding, its property tax allocation and whether they will continue to offer existing services.
Bakaly explained the district had no intention of going to voters for additional taxes beyond the $3.4 million it expects to receive in the current fiscal year. Those property taxes, first instituted when the district was formed to operate a hospital in 1962, represent 25 percent of the BCHD total budget this year with the remaining $9.2 million coming from leases and other partnership arrangements.
It was in the mid-90s that the hospital district became a special district. Rather than operating a hospital, it shifted to provide widespread preventative health services. By leasing its land to other providers including to Sunrise Assisted Living facility in Hermosa Beach, the district is able to leverage its resources. Today, for each dollar contributed toward the district in property taxes, it delivers $3.
50 in services, Bakaly said. For its new senior housing, the district plans to partner with a developer to construct and operate the facility. Bakaly said they are hiring a developer to work on a consultancy basis during the planning. That won't necessarily be the developer that's finally chosen, he said. That decision will be decided by the district's elected board of directors. The cost of the units and what percentage, if any, would be deemed "affordable" Bakaly said has not been decided.
He did assure residents that locals would be offered preferential treatment for the rentals. A total price tag on the project has also not been provided. Other attendees at Tuesday's forum questioned whether the plans would require a zoning change from its Commercial-2 designation for the property, which could need voter approval. To that Bakaly said the district was confident a zoning change was not needed.
The district will begin an Environmental Impact Report in January to be completed within a year. They hope to wrap up permitting by 2019 with construction starting in 2020. The remodel of the hospital building is expected to begin later this year. For more information visit BCHD.org/healthylivingcampus.
