The Project consists of Site Plan Review for the construction of three (3) eight (8)-story apartment buildings with a total of 900 dwelling units, 38,405 square feet of ground floor commercial space, and 1,383 parking stalls in at-grade parking garages (SPR22-060), and a Vesting Tentative Parcel Map (No. 83693) to subdivide one 170,736-square-foot lot into two lots of
101,724 and 68,712 square feet (TPM22-002), located at 450 The Promenade North/501-599 Long Beach Blvd. in the Downtown Plan Planned Development District (PD-30). The Project includes the complete demolition of on-site improvements, removing all 197,513 square feet of existing commercial and retail uses in two buildings. The project will then develop one
eight-story mixed-use building (Building B) on the southern portion of the site and two eight-story buildings [one mixed-use building (Building C1) and one residential building (Building C2)] on the northern portion of the site, and a standalone 2,405-sq. ft. retail pavilion on the northern portion of the site. The project includes a total of 900 residential units, including 102 studio
units, 476 one-bedroom units, 313 two-bedroom units, and 9 nine three-bedroom units. Each of the three buildings includes a residential garage with three levels of above-grade parking as well as bicycle storage areas located on the ground floor, with air conditioning units, boiler rooms, and space for future solar panels on the roof of each of the buildings. The project
includes 31,195 square feet of common indoor open space, 62,027 square feet of common outdoor open space, and 29,747 square feet of private open space, including 451 units with private balconies, depicted on pages A0-5A through A0-5D of plans. The project also includes 181 individual residential storage units for residents, located in the parking structures.
Additionally, the proposed project will develop 38,405 square feet of leasable commercial/retail space, including a 2,405 square-foot, one-story-plus-mezzanine retail pavilion on the north side of 5th Street at the intersection with The Promenade North, separate from the three eight-story buildings. A new pedestrian paseo on the project site’s property will connect 5th
Street and 6th Street on the west side of Buildings C1 and C2, abutting the City parking structure to the west.
