Broadway Block Mixed-Use Development

Long Beach, CA

Case Study: Place Making

Creating community and making urban connections.

Connecting people to purpose, and transforming space into place.

Unfortunately this project was sold by our client to a real estate developer who discarded our work.

The built project on this site today incorporates none of the ideas, civic aspirations or aesthetics found in the drawings below.

The $215 million development of the Broadway Block brings together 400 residential apartments with creative offices, artist galleries, restaurants, food and retail uses, a performing arts venue for Cal State University Long Beach, and the adaptive reuse of the historic Acres of Books Building in what will become the first development of its kind in Downtown Long Beach. Construction commencement is targeted for mid-2019.
