A mixed-use development featuring housing and ground-floor retail space is under construction at a long-vacant lot near the Blue Line's Pacific Coast Highway Station in Long Beach.

The project, rising at the southeast corner of 16th Street and Long Beach Boulevard, will consist of a four-story building featuring 36 residential units above 10,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and structured parking for 127 vehicles.

Renderings portray a contemporary low-rise building, with a lush amenity deck elevated over at-grade parking along the east side of the property.

A project website links the development to an entity called Los Angeles City Plaza, LP, which is affiliated with California Investment Regional Center, an El Monte firm specializing in EB-5 financing.  The total budget of the Long Beach project, called Long Beach Garden Home, is listed as $20 million.

The units are being marketed as for-sale condominiums, with a mix of one- and two-bedroom floor plans with sales prices ranging between $518,000 and $650,000.

To track construction progress, see a pair of live cameras mounted above the development site.

A number of similar developments are either planned or under construction near other Blue Line stops in Long Beach, as highlighted in a recent presentation from Mayor Robert Garcia called "Building a Better Long Beach."
