Height wars in Long Beach continue: Report details 30-story hotel projectRelease Date: 2018-10-19
The height wars within Downtown Long Beach have officially begun. Shortly after the Shoreline Gateway broke ground earlier this month—what will be the city’s tallest building at 417 feet when complete—the city released its environmental report on a 30-story hotel being proposed for the site at 100 E. Ocean Blvd.
According to the report, the massive project will include 537,075-square-feet of hotel space spanning 429 rooms—171 king rooms, 152 double-queen rooms, 76 suites, and 30 penthouse suites—along with 23,512-square-feet of restaurant space and 26,847-square-feet of conference, ballroom, and pre-function spaces. At its apex, which are the penthouses at the top, the building is expected to reach a height of 402 feet, just above the World Trade Center but below Shoreline Gateway, making it the second building to achieve a height above 400 feet.Read more on the Long Beach Post
