Cool project.....But Jesus its in the wrong spot. That's in the center of downtown (directly across the street from the 3rd tallest) ....Its especially odd when you compare it to what was originally proposed on the site. If I remember correctly it was a 27-30 story building back in 2006-07 that had an attached 7 story.. until the recession kicked in and canceled Christmas..... But I will say that this packs in more units.

On a different note. The crane is up and running for the new civic center. That project is moving quicker than I thought.

Great news. Downtown is finally turning into something that it should have been a long time ago. Its always been a little neglected because of its location. Developers over looked it, city leaders just started caring. In the next 10 years, Long Beach will be a solid city. It just need dense developments and solid retail and attractions to get people down there.

Theres a 7 story development going up on 1st and Alamitos. Kinda amazing seeing how most buildings right next door are barely 2 floors tall.

I totally agree. Like Oakland (and to some degree Sacramento) in the north, Long Beach suffers from being in the shadow of it's larger more famous neighbor. There's so much *potential* in Long Beach. It has great weather and is the most walkable city in the area but I wonder about the air quality. I heard it's not so great because of the port and oil. So I understand why they focused on tourism to take up the slack of declining manufacturing but there's just nothing to really compel me to go to Long Beach. Although the Queen Mary/Urban Adventures project seems like a step in the right direction what would really appeal to me is dynamic oceanfront city and it's something that is missing in Southern California (San Diego is on a bay and Santa Monica is a suburb.) To make that happen LB needs a lot more residential towers. I'm just worried the old mentality is at play, especially now that there's the distraction of the 16-day 2028 Summer Olympics, eleven years from now.

The Aquarium of the Pacific is fantastic and worth visiting.

Regarding air quality, the port (I forget if it is the Port of Long Beach or LA) is spending significant money to transition to clean energy sources and clean trucks serving the port.

^^^ The Aquarium is nice. But. I always felt it was tooooo small. Especially since its the aquarium of the PACIFIC. It needs to be at least three times the size it is now. Last time I went, I walked around and did all of the "activities" in less than 30 minutes. There is plenty of room to expand., Over the water, Its HUGE parking lot that barely gets half full and the barely used park next door.

I Agree. Long Beach needs a solid 100k new units of some shape or form downtown. It dies quickly at night. And the nimby problem in Long Beach is probably one of the worst in ALL of LA. The amount of rundown 2-3 story neglected apartments that are located in the downtown area is just sad. Every time a developer comes in to build something. The Nimbys come in yelling and screaming with their pitchforks saying no. I'm surprised the City hall redevelopment got approval.
