A year after the official start of construction, rebar cages are now climbing upward, as the podium of "The Place at The Streets," takes shape in Downtown Long Beach.
Located at the southwest corner of 5th Street and Promenade North, the project from Shooshani Developers will consist of a four-story building featuring 20 apartments above street-level commercial space. The mixed-use building is one component of an ongoing renovation of the surrounding shopping complex - formerly known as City Place - which is adding new stores, offices, and open spaces.
The apartment building is designed by Urban Architecture Lab, and will feature an exterior colored red and white. Retail offerings and outdoor seating are planned along the project's 5th Street frontage, including a small courtyard to be located immediately west of the building.
At the time of the project's groundbreaking, completion was expected in Spring 2019.
