More than two years after we last checked in, vertical construction is complete for the Pacific Plaza Monterey Park development in Monterey Park.

Construction at 420 N Atlantic BoulevardUrbanize LA

Located on a two-acre site at 420 N. Atlantic Boulevard, the project replaced a 55-room motel and a 13-unit apartment building with a new five-story building that will feature 136-room hotel, 84 residential units, and 7,125 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space at completion.

Local real estate development firm Pacific Plaza Premier is behind the project, which is shown in renderings as a contemporary low-rise complex with a six-story hotel block facing Atlantic to the west and a smaller five-story residential structure fronting Chandler Avenue to the east.

The company's other projects include a new housing development now taking shape in Alhambra and the Pacific Square complex in San Gabriel.
