At the intersection of 3rd Street and Pacific Avenue in Downtown Long Beach, wood framing is taking shape for the latest mixed-use apartment complex from Holland Partner Group.

The project, located at both 131 W. 3rd Street and 250 Pacific Avenue, will eventually stand eight stories in height, featuring 271 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above approximately 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Plans also call for parking for 395 vehicles.

Urban Architecture Lab is designing the podium-type development, which will have exterior finishes including fiber cement boards, glass, and painted plaster. The mixed-use structure will also include amenities such as a fitness center, a club room, a rooftop deck, and multiple open-air courtyards.

Plans also show that the site will be divided through a mid-block paseo, allowing pedestrians to cut through the property at street level to reach Pine Avenue one block east.

The new development was entitled for construction by local real estate firm Ensemble, which originally secured approvals for a larger complex which would have included a 23-story high-rise and up to 345 apartments, but pivoted to the current project in 2021.

The project is the third in recent years for Holland Partner Group in Long Beach, following the completion of the Volta on Pine development a few blocks north. The Vancouver, Washington-based firm next plans to build 281 apartments on the site of the Congressional Place office complex at 6700 E. Pacific Coast Highway.

Outside of Long Beach, Holland Partner Group's ongoing developments include a 331-unit apartment complex now rising across the street from The Grove and the Farmer's Market.
