Revitalization of Downtown Long Beach continues with a new seven-story, 216-unit development currently underway at the site of a previously vacant parking lot at the southeast corner of Ocean Boulevard and Pacific Avenue. Oceanaire adds to the recent construction boom in the area, and will reactivate a prime intersection in the Downtown core.

“This contemporary development will offer sustainable market rate housing in the Downtown, just steps away from our coastline,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “The revitalization of underutilized sites to fill vital uses in our City renews economic energy, enabling Long Beach to flourish.”

Located at 150 West Ocean Blvd., Oceanaire will include a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, and an integrated three-level parking garage. The project will feature a clean, contemporary aesthetic, and will continue the trend of high-quality, context-sensitive buildings in the Downtown.

“The ongoing growth and development of our Downtown and the Second District is truly exciting,” said Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce. “Oceanaire will add to the livability of our community, attracting new residents, jobs, and investment opportunities to the City.”

Further enhancing the environment and connectivity of the Downtown, additional project components include improvement of the Victory Park stretch along Ocean
Boulevard, and the development of a new City park at the Seaside Way grade.

Construction of Oceanaire adds to the growing number of major developments to come to the Downtown area, including the re-envisioned Long Beach Civic Center, Shoreline Gateway, and other mixed-use and residential developments. Oceanaire is expected for completion in 2018.
