At its meeting this week, the Long Beach Planning Commission is scheduled to consider a proposal from Holland Partner Group to construct a mid-rise apartment complex at the corner of 7th Street and Pine Avenue.

The proposed development, dubbed the Pacific-Pine Project, would consist of two eight-story buildings featuring 271 residential units, 1,305 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and 341 parking stalls on three basement levels.  Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings - ranging between 499 and 1,423 square feet in size.  A total of 11 units would be deed restricted to moderate-income households, according to a staff report.

MVE + Partners is designing the mid-rise development, which would be linked by a pedestrian bridge over an alley way.  Elevation plans indicate an exterior of aluminum, smooth stucco, and glass, with common amenities including a fitness center and multiple roof decks.

The Long Beach Department of Development Services' staff report recommends that the Planning Commission approved the Pacific-Pine Project.

One block away, a 10-story assisted living facility is planned at the intersection of 8th and Pine.
