I received a few emails this past week concerning the Jackson By The Beach..uhh excuse me… I mean Long Beach Hotel over at 405 E. Broadway. One resident tells me how he went to the building department and learned that the building has been grandfathered in as a hotel since 1927 and is not required to have a parking lot/plan. Apparently the building department doesn’t know how the new hotel will deal with the inevitable parking problem. Also, apparently the Long Beach Hotel has all the permits to finish everything they want to do.
Another resident rells me this:
“There has been a lot of activity lately. New garage-type roll up doors were put in in front of what looks like their new bar area. Fancy booths look like they are peeking out of the windows. A new blue awning was also installed today. And, lastly, somebody they know interviewed for a bartending job.
So this place is actually moving forward. If anybody has any additional info, let us know!
