Where is the iStar Long Beach project?
It is located on just over six acres adjacent to the Long Beach Boardwalk between Riverside and Long Beach Boulevards.
What will be built there?
The plan is to create two residential buildings with recreational amenities and parking for residents and their guests; plus retail space and a large seating area that will serve the public.
How many residences will there be and what will they be like?
The project will include 522 luxury apartments. All residences will offer either one or two bedrooms and will be available for rent at market prices.
How tall are the buildings?
Each is configured as 15 stories of residences over a two-level ground floor of retail space.
How will these buildings affect surrounding views?
Each building has been carefully designed and positioned to help preserve view corridors.
How will the boardwalk experience change?
It will become more interesting. You’ll be able to stroll directly off the boardwalk into the shops and eateries on the first level. You’ll also have an open invitation to enjoy a 4,000-square-foot public seating area that overlooks the beach. In short, the boardwalk experience will only get better for everyone.
How much retail space will be created?
Over 11,000 square feet — enough room for five businesses.
Will the project put a strain on local parking, infrastructure or services?
None whatsoever. We’re creating over 900 parking spaces for residents and guests. We’re also paying to upgrade all utility infrastructure to fully accommodate the project.
