Nearly five months after an official groundbreaking ceremony, a new development of townhomes is pushing dirt in Downtown Long Beach.

The project, known as the Huxton, is located at 227 Elm Avenue, just east of the Metro Blue Line.  Plans call for 40 townhomes, in addition to communal spaces such as a community room, outdoor courtyards and a paseo.

The homes will feature unique floor plans ranging between 1,240 square feet and 1,900 square feet, with dedicated residential and guest parking.

Sales prices are expected to start in the upper $400,000s.
