Long Beach, Calif. – A former state office building near City Hall in Long Beach, California, is reportedly being torn down to make way for a seven-story, $53 million mixed use retail and residential complex. According to the Long Beach Press-Telegram, the vacant property was bought in foreclosure for $10 million in 2010.
The Long Beach Planning Commission approved plans for the project, slated for completion in early 2017, in October 2013. The first floor will feature retail stores including a gallery, bike repair shop, pet grooming service and fitness facility. The complex will also feature 222 residential units.
