Nearly five months after an official groundbreaking ceremony, a new development of townhomes is pushing dirt in Downtown Long Beach.

The project, known as the Huxton, is located at 227 Elm Avenue, just east of the Metro Blue Line.  Plans call for 40 townhomes, in addition to communal spaces such as a community room, outdoor courtyards and a paseo.

The homes will feature unique floor plans ranging between 1,240 square feet and 1,900 square feet, with dedicated residential and guest parking.

Sales prices are expected to start in the upper $400,000s.

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
