A group of developers led by the Ratkovich Company is planning a $154-million mixed-use complex in Downtown Long Beach, according to Longbeachize.

The Broadway Block project, slated for the east side of Long Beach Boulevard between Broadway and 3rd Street, calls for the construction of a 21-story tower and an adjacent seven-story building containing 375 residential units and acessory uses.  Longbeachize reports that at least some of the apartments will be set aside as affordable housing for Cal State Long Beach graduate students.

Other components of the proposed development include over 5,700 square feet of creative office space, 3,800 square feet of flex space, 6,000 square feet of loce space, 1,300 square feet of ArtExchange space and 3,200 square feet of university space.  Parking for 524 vehicles will also be located on the property.

Besides Ratkovich, other partners in the development include Urbana, LLC and the Owl Companies.
