Building A Better Long Beach: More than 60 developments in the pipeline across the city

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on development projects throughout Long Beach—stalling out some in the planning phase, delaying ongoing construction and, in some cases, forcing developers to bow out. But despite the challenges, there are more than 60 projects at various phases citywide.

“The city is pleased to see continued robust investment and development,” said Christopher Koontz, deputy director of Long Beach Development Services. “While COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of development … our partners have been working hard to keep projects moving so they can deliver jobs, housing, goods and services Long Beach residents need.”

Residential development is the most active in the city, with over 7,000 units at various stages—newly completed, under construction, approved, under review or proposed. Project types include apartments, condominiums, townhomes and detached single-family homes ranging from affordable to luxury. More than 920 affordable units are included in the total development figure.

Affordable units are subsidized through local, state and federal funding, allowing developers to construct projects at a lower cost and guarantee rents below market value. Many affordable developments cater to specific groups such as seniors, veterans and those experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness.

Despite the hospitality industry taking a major hit due to the pandemic, plans for multiple hotel projects are still on the books. Between six projects, more than 1,200 hotel rooms are under construction or proposed.

While office space construction is nowhere near booming, it isn’t nonexistent in Long Beach. Laserfiche is in the midst of constructing its new headquarters on Atlantic Avenue—a four-story office building totaling nearly 103,000 square feet. The project and Laserfiche’s recommitment to Long Beach, has repeatedly been touted by Mayor Robert Garcia as a testament to the bullishness of businesses in the city and abroad.

Medical office development in Long Beach was stagnant for years; however, multiple projects are currently under construction in the form of more than 220 beds and nearly 100,000 square feet of medical space.

Many of the residential projects are considered mixed-use, which means they include retail and restaurant space, typically on the ground floor. Some hotel projects also include dining and bar areas that are open to the public. In all, more than 2.17 million square feet of commercial space is in the Long Beach development pipeline.

Commercial space includes retail and restaurant, office and industrial.

“While we expected and are seeing some slowdown in new permits being issued, we know that approved projects as well as those projects now in the planning and entitlement stages will be crucial to the overall economic recovery,” Koontz said. “These projects are putting Long Beach residents back to work and building a better Long Beach for all.”

The following is a comprehensive list of development projects throughout the city compiled by Long Beach Development Services and Business Journal staff.
