A staff report scheduled for review at the April 20 meeting of the Long Beach Planning Commission reveals a new look for a proposed mixed-use apartment complex from developer Holland Partner Group.

Just over one year ago, the Washington-based developer paid $41 million to acquire an approximately 2.5-acre site at 6700 Pacific Coast Highway, just north of the border between Long Beach and Seal Beach. The proposed project, which replaces a two-story office building, would consist of a new 592,000-square-foot complex featuring 281 apartments, a 507-car garage, and approximately 3,100-square-feet of commercial space.

The new apartments would come in a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans, according to the report. Of that total, 13 would be set aside for rent by very low-income households.

AC Martin is designing the building, which is named 6700 PCH for its address. Plans show a building with an E-shaped footprint above its podium level, leaving space for a pair of amenity decks at the third floor.

A staff report recommends that the Planning Commission should approve 6700 PCH, and determine that its potential impacts were already analyzed through the Southeast Area Specific Plan's environmental study.

The project is one of three large new developments announced for the surrounding stretch of Pacific Coast Highway during then Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia's final Building a Better Long Beach presentation, joining new mixed-use projects from Onni Group and Carmel Partners. The three developments, when completed, would create more than 1,300 new apartments.

Holland Partner Group, in addition to its new project, previously developed the Volta on Pine development apartments in Downtown Long Beach.
