Here’s what’s planned near the former Walmart store in Downtown Long Beach

Release Date: 2017-06-06

A new housing tower for Cal State Long Beach students is planned near the long-shuttered Walmart building in the former City Place shopping center downtown, Mayor Robert Garcia announced Tuesday.

The 22-story complex, called the CSULB Downtown Village, will be able to house up to 1,100 students and faculty members, and will include 16 classrooms, 800 beds and a university art museum, officials said. The students will be mostly juniors, seniors and graduate students, and their presence will be a boon for downtown businesses, the mayor said.
