Shoreline Gateway, the future tallest building in Long Beach, will break ground in early 2018 according to an announcement from co-developers Ledcor Properties Inc. and Anderson Pacific LLC.

The proposed 35-story tower, planned at the northwest corner of Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue, will feature 315 luxury apartments above 6,700 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and five levels of underground parking for 467 vehicles.

Plans call for a mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, ranging from 520 square feet to 2,500 square feet in size.  The project will also include on-site amenities such as a community room at the 33rd floor, a rooftop pool and a large fitness center.

Anderson Pacific, which is also partnered with Qualico and Lantower Residential, first envisioned the tower in 2004 as a gateway to Downtown Long Beach.  Although market conditions set the project more than a decade, plans for the high-rise complex came roaring back to life in 2014 with the start of construction on its companion development - the Current.  The 17-story, 223-unit tower was completed next-door last year, and will share a 10,000-square-foot plaza with Shoreline Gateway.

Architecture firms Studio One Eleven, Carrier Johnson + Culture and RELM Studio are designing the project, which will rise 417 feet above ground level, making it the tallest building in Long Beach.
