At its meeting today, the Long Beach Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on a proposed development which would bring senior housing to a property in the Downtown area.
The project, which is being developed by Global Premier Development, is the second phase of the Regency Palms retirement community - located at the intersection of 8th Street and Pine Avenue. Plans call for the construction of a 10-story building containing 78 units of assisted living housing, including 61 private rooms and 17 semi-private rooms. Parking for 74 spaces would be located in a garage beneath the building.
KTGY Architecture + Planning is designing the mid-rise structure, which would stand approximately 126 feet in height. Renderings depict a contemporary look with a glass facade combined with vertical metal panels, textured metal, and stone. Amenity decks would be located at the roof level and on a carve-out above the second floor.
The proposed development is described as being compatible to the adjacent Regency Palms building, which dates to the 1920s.
A staff report recommends that Commissioners should vote to approve the project.
