An environmental report published last week by the City of Long Beach, California details plans from Trammell Crow Residential to build a skyline-altering development on the western side of Downtown Long Beach.

The Westside Gateway development, slated for a 5.5-acre (2.2 hectare) site at 600 West Broadway, would replace a parking lot located immediately north of the Long Beach World Trade Center. A full build-out of the project would include 746 studios, one- to three-bedroom dwellings, a 1,510-car garage, and a 3,000-square-foot (279-square-meter) market.

Westside Gateway joins a handful of large, multi-building developments slated for Downtown Long Beach, including potential towers and mid-rise structures surrounding the city’s rebuilt Civic Center.

Designed by Studio One Eleven, the project would feature six high-rise and mid-rise buildings in addition to a nine-story parking structure.

The larger structure, if built as currently proposed, would eclipse the under-construction Shoreline Gateway tower on Ocean Avenue to become one of the tallest buildings in Long Beach.

Between the two high-rise buildings, plans call for an array of 5- to 7-story structures arranged around a central green space. Architectural plans also show common and private amenities including a dog park, a central landscaped courtyard, swimming pools, roof decks, and event space.

A timeline for the project has not been announced, though the Long Beach Planning Commission is scheduled to review the Westside Gateway development at its 18 July 2019 meeting.

Trammell Crow Residential’s other ongoing projects in Los Angeles County include a proposed 436-unit apartment complex in Monrovia and a 200-unit development now under construction in Historic Filipinotown. The company has also pursued a high-rise development adjacent to the Eastern Columbia Building in Downtown Los Angeles.
