The Signal Hill City Council has approved initial plans for the eight-acre Heritage Square development, reports Longbeachize.

Planned at the west side of Cherry Avenue Between Burnett and Crescent Heights Streets, the project calls for constructing 200 residential units with up to 60,000 square feet of retail space.

Developer Signal Hill Petroleum has tapped KTGY Architecture + Planning to design the project, which takes inspiration from the oil derricks that were once abundant in the South Bay.

A representative of SHP told the Long Beach Business Journal in 2017 that there are currently several oils wells at the development site that may need to be abandoned.

Proposed Small Lot Development Near Barnsdall Park Faces Appeal

Plans call for 18 small lot homes on Hollywood Boulevard.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
