An environmental report published last week by the City of Long Beach details plans from Trammell Crow Residential to build a skyline-altering development on the western side of Downtown Long Beach.

The Westside Gateway development, slated for a 5.59-acre site at 600 West Broadway, would replace a parking lot located immediately north of the Long Beach World Trade Center.  A full buildout of the project would include 746 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings; a 1,510-car garage; and a 3,000-square-foot market.

Designed by Studio One Eleven, the project would feature six high-rise and mid-rise buildings in addition to a nine-story parking structure.  

Two towers - a 21-story, 239-foot building and a 40-story, 426-foot building - would anchor the eastern and western property lines.  The larger structure, if built as currently proposed, would eclipse the under-construction Shoreline Gateway tower on Ocean Avenue to become the tallest building in Long Beach.

Between the two high-rise buildings, plans call for an array of five-to-seven-story structures arranged around a central green space.  Architectural plans also show common and private amenities including a dog park, a central landscaped courtyard, swimming pools, roof decks, and event space.

A timeline for the project has not been announced, though the Long Beach Planning Commission is scheduled to review the Westside Gateway development at its July 18 meeting.

Westside Gateway joins a handful of large, multi-building developments slated for Downtown Long Beach, including potential towers and mid-rise structures surrounding the city's rebuilt Civic Center.

Trammell Crow Residential other ongoing projects in Los Angeles County include a proposed 436-unit apartment complex in Monrovia and a 200-unit development now under construction in Historic Filipinotown.  The company has also pursued a high-rise development adjacent to the Eastern Columbia Building in Downtown Los Angeles.
