Seven months after we last dropped by, the wood and concrete frame of a $20-million condominium development is nearly complete next to Metro's Pacific Coast Highway Station

The Long Beach Garden Home development, located at the southeast corner of 16th Street and Long Beach Boulevard, consists of a four-story building that will offer 36 residential units, 10,000 square feet of street-fronting retail, and parking for 126 vehicles. 

The contemporary low-rise structure consists of three stories of wood-frame construction atop a concrete podium.  Renderings show an amenity deck facing the eastern property line, perched above at-grade parking. 

The project is being developed by an entity called Los Angeles City Plaza, LP, which is affiliated with California Investment Regional Center.  

Banners displayed at the construction site indicate that sales prices for the residential units start at $450,000.  A completion date is unclear.

The project is one of three large developments now under construction near the Blue Line's PCH Station, which is currently closed for renovations.  LINC Housing broke ground in March on a 95-unit development at 1900-1940 Long Beach Boulevard, followed a week later by Clifford Beers Housing, which is building 48 apartments at 1836-1852 Locust Avenue.
