Minor Photo Update

Took some photos while at home again.

Here is the previously abandoned site of the 6th Street Lofts project, which is expected to be finished in 2015:




Here's a rendering of 6th Street Lofts courtesy of Longbeachize:


You can see some progress over at Urban Village Long Beach despite the bad lighting:


Phase II of MillWorks LB is looking good:


Next time I'll try to pop over to The Current.

Photo Update

All photos taken by me October 17, 2014. These projects are very close to one another. There are only a couple of blocks between most and some are across the street from one another (the exception being Urban Village). I forgot to swing by 6th Street Lofts. I'll make sure to do that next time.

The new model gallery is part of a much more ambitious plan for the landmark hotel aboard the ship, which has been in Long Beach since 1967. The plan is to create a 65,000-square-foot maritime museum and learning center aboard the ship.

And by large I mean Large for Long Beach standards.

Apparently, there is a "Long Beach Phase 2" project that was found by caligrad.

Nice, I really do miss living in Long Beach.

Regarding the last photo, I love what they are doing to Pine Square Apartments, now that the old movie theater is closed. The the bottom part of building facing Pacific Avenue looks so much more inviting to pedestrians and not so dead, now they being converted into Lofts. That blank wall was just so depressing before, I hated walking past there

The Pike Outlets to Celebrate Grand Reopening this Weekend in Long Beach

Two new clothing retailers are expected to open in the next few months at The Pike Outlets in downtown Long Beach, an official said Friday.

Columbia Sportswear and Cotton-On are scheduled to open by early January, Rose Barrantes, general manager at The Pike Outlets, said during a morning press conference to announce the grand reopening of the Shoreline Drive-based shopping and retail center.

The reopening celebration takes place through Saturday and includes live music, free Ferris Wheel rides and various sales at H&M, Converse and Restoration Hardware.

The Pike opened in 2003 but has struggled to draw and retain retailers and consumers. But two years ago, DDR, the Ohio-based company that operates The Pike, attracted Restoration Hardware in hopes of turning around the troubled development. Securing the high-end home furnishings store was the first step to re-envision and rebrand the Pike as an outlet mall, said DDR spokesman Matthew Schuler.

Since then, Nike, Forever 21, H&M and Gap Factory have opened at the outlet mall.

Huge Entertainment District to Surround Queen Mary in Long Beach

The Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach for 49 years, is all of a sudden in for some big changes. The ship's just changed hands and the new lessees, Los Angeles-based investment firm Urban Commons, have secured a 66-year "master lease" for the ship, which they'll be remodeling, but they'll also be altering the land all around the QM. They're planning to eventually build out a "bustling retail, dining and entertainment district" on the 45 acres surrounding the ship, according to a release announcing the new leaseholders.

But first, there will be upgrades to the old ocean liner. All the "enhancements" should be finished by the middle of next year, with the ship staying open for both hotel guests and regular touristy ones during the remodeling.

The second phase of the project will transform the "underutilized oceanfront land" that’s next to the ship, turning it into as much of a destination as the ship has been. Long Beach's vice mayor says in a release for the project that she is happy to have Urban Commons as a "a collaborative partner" in the process to reinvigorate the area around the iconic ship. The planning process for the development seems to be in the earliest stages now.

This isn't the only major project headed for Long Beach's waterfront. The Aquarium of the Pacific just last month announced big plans to add a new 29,000-square-foot wing onto their existing facilities. The expansion looks like a glassy, blue whale and will hold a two-story, 300-seat theater and a new main entrance.

Can $250 million and a Ferris wheel finally turn the Queen Mary into a Long Beach tourist destination?

The company, Urban Commons, was chosen by the city late last year as the new leaseholder of the marine complex. The company formally took over the lease this week and is working with a task force appointed by the mayor on ideas for developing the surrounding 45 acres, now mostly parking lots.

While plans are still preliminary, company principal Taylor Woods said he would like to add to the 314 staterooms available on the ship. He envisions a 200-room landside boutique hotel, restaurants, a marina and an amphitheater for thousands to enjoy live music and events — all linked together by jogging and bike paths near the water.

Woods said a giant Ferris wheel is also a possibility, as long as it wouldn't detract from the Long Beach skyline.

Woods said Urban Commons has been holding substantive meetings with city officials and the Queen Mary Land Development Task Force and hopes to have a master plan for the city's approval within a year. He hopes the whole development will be finished within five years.
