Despite all the FOR SALE signs sprinkled across the city, new stuff keeps getting built. An apartment-style building is going up on E. Broadway, between Lincoln & Franklin Blvds. It’s not the largest we’ve seen, but it’s pretty significant. Unless I’m missing something, this appears to be the tallest development in Long Beach since the Aqua on the Ocean in 2008 (see-I have seen the future and it is good or bad).
I borrowed some google map images as a comparison to what was there before: A one family house.
It makes you wonder just how long it’ll be until similar developments take over all of East & West Broadway.
OUT with the small and IN with the tall?
Our small city skyline keeps changing. I’m not sure if this new building is a co-op, condo or rental. If this were ten years ago, we’d probably be looking at a photo of a mini-mansion, which would of attracted a higher price. Thankfully those went out of style.
Population increase & diverse housing appears to be part of the city’s agenda, but just how many people can this tiny city fit?
