More than three years after breaking ground at the eastern edge of Downtown Long Beach, it's official: Shoreline Gateway is complete.

The 35-story tower - built by Ledcor Properties Inc. and Anderson Pacific, LLC, with partners Qualico and Lantower Residential - sits on a corner lot at the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue, and now ranks as the tallest building in Long Beach.

“Shoreline Gateway represents the growth of our city, both past and present,” said Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia in a news release. “For nearly 100 years, living in Downtown Long Beach has provided amazing views of our shoreline for so many residents and visitors. This project will be a new home for thousands more, marking a significant transformation to our one-of-a-kind skyline.”

The glass-and-steel building features 315 luxury apartments on its upper floors, with 6,500 square feet of commercial space and a five-level, 470-car subterranean parking garage below. The units come in a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, ranging from 616 to 1,700 square feet in size, with two-level penthouses on the top floors.

Rents at Shoreline Gateway range from $2,960 to $15,795 per month.

Designed firms Studio One ElevenCarrier Johnson + Culture, and Relm have worked on the project, which rises approximately 417 feet above street level. The building, in addition to housing, features amenities such as a third-floor barbeque pit and bocci ball court, a fitness center, a yoga room, and a rooftop pool deck overlooking San Pedro Bay.

Shoreline Gateway is the culmination of a project which dates to 2004, when the project was first proposed under the now defunct Long Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. The tower is the second component of a two-part development which kicked off with the construction of The Current, 17-story apartment tower located on an adjacent site to the west. The two buildings share a 10,000-square-foot landscaped plaza, located on a vacated segment of Lime Avenue running between the two structures.
