The Downtown Long Beach California area has gone through a vibrant revitalization which still continues. New hi and low-rise condos, Manhattan style loft developments, condo conversions, new malls and entertainment complexes all either at the beach or within a several blocks walk continue to sprout. A total urbanization of the area is under way. It really is quite spectacular.

Imagine, affordable beach front condos, and affordable beach close properties.


Downtown Long Beach is growing and improving daily.  Just 10 years ago the crime rate in the Downtown Long Beach area was staggering.  While parts of the area are still a bit gritty, it has come a very long way.  The many new condos and conversions on and off of East Ocean Blvd. have contributed to the substantial rise in equity in the area.

The close proximity of the Long Beach Airport, its ease of use and its future planned expansion, have aided Downtown Long Beach in becoming highly desirable places for todays urban minded professionals to live, work and play. Arrive at the airport 30 minutes before your flight, park your car, walk across the street, check in your bags, go to your gate (short walk) and take off, with time to spare, this just could not be any easier.  Which is probably why the city saw the merit in making Downtown Long Beach a Long Beach Wireless Hot Zone.

The development of Downtown Long Beach is extremely exciting because it will energize the community through the real growth and diversification of retailers while also providing aesthetic improvements, enhanced infrastructure, and upscale housing, said Barbara Kaiser, Manager of the City of Long Beachs Redevelopment Agency. ˜At the center of the Southern California coastline with easy access and an inviting atmosphere, its easy to see why more developers are choosing to invest in Downtown Long Beach.

Downtown is home to many large hotels, necessary to handle the busy traffic created by The Long Beach Area Convention Center. Featuring a 224,000 square foot exhibit hall with 83,000 feet of space for meetings. 

A new development is currently in the works which will encompass 1 million square feet of new entertainment and retail space and 1,300 residential units.  Tower 1 will be comprised of 55 floors, tower 2 wil be comprised of 45 floors.   This innovative complex will be located just north of the World Trade Center and will be shaped like a ships sail. The development is being planned by Molasky Pacific California, LLC and was currently scheduled for completion in 2009 or 2010, this project has been delayed a bit.  An artists rendition of this complex can be viewed here
