The Long Beach Planning Commission is voting on two multi-family development proposals on October 20, including a new 163-unit project at 3rd Street and Pacific Avenue and a request to increase the number of units of the planned 35-story residential tower at Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue. The commission meets at 5 p.m. at city hall.


Sares-Regis Group Planning Eight-Story Multi-Family Project At 3rd And Pacific

Adding to a slew of residential developments underway or planned in Downtown Long Beach, Sares-Regis Group is seeking approval for an eight-story, 163-unit multi-family development at 230 W. 3rd St. The proposed development will occupy just under an acre of land across the street from the historic First Congregational Church.


The project site is directly north of the 222-unit Parc Broadway multi-family development underway at 245 W. Broadway. The land is part of a development area included in the four-block Long Beach Civic Center project, according to a city staff report.


The new structure will front three streets, including 3rd Street, Pacific Avenue and Cedar Ave. Floor plans include 17 studios, 92 one-bedroom flats, 28 one-bedroom lofts, 30 two-bedroom flats, and 5 two-bedroom lofts. Five two-story townhomes with private patios are also included in the site plans. Amenities include a courtyard, a rooftop deck, a gym and more.


A four-level parking garage with 244 spaces accessible from both Cedar Avenue and Pacific Avenue is also included in the plans.


Developer Proposing 94 Additional Units For Second Shoreline Gateway Tower

The developer of Shoreline Gateway, a luxury apartment development at the northwest corner of Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue, is proposing an additional 94-units for the planned second tower. The first tower – the 17-story, 223-unit The Current – was completed last year.


Original plans for the second tower allowed for 221 residential units. The developer, Shoreline Development Partners, is requesting to increase the figure to 315 units. The height of the planned tower, 35-stories, will remain the same, according to a city staff report. To accommodate the new residences, a five story, 458-space parking garage will be included, rather than the previously approved two-story, 393-space garage.
