Construction of a massive, 415,592-square-foot warehouse is set to move forward at the southwest corner of Artesia and Paramount boulevards and will be named Bridge Point.

The $84 million project, designed by Herdman Architecture and led by Bridge Development Partners, will not only bring in 500 permanent jobs according to Councilmember Rex Richardson, but also decommission a site that was originally a petroleum refinery when it was activated in the 1930s. It has since served as an asphalt manufacturer.

Bridge Point Long Beach, on top of the roughly 390,000 square feet warehouse space that will join existing warehouse businesses in the area like the Toyota manufacturing warehouse to the south, will also create 21,000 square feet of new office space.

According to the Richardson’s office, the project will include “high-end architectural design and finishes, such as concrete panels in varying hues of gray and reflective blue-glazed glass, and sustainable features such as a solar-ready roof and more than 100 parking stalls with electric vehicle (EV) chargers or EV-ready infrastructure,” of which contribute to what Richardson dubs North Long Beach’s “renaissance.”
