The Long Beach Planning Commission added another twist in the ongoing saga of the controversial second+pch development last night by approving revisions to the plan that scale back the project from an earlier version approved last month. The new mixed-use development is set for the site of the old SeaPort Marina Hotel at Second Street and Pacific Coast Highway, hence the name. Last month, the commission approved zoning changes that will allow for a 12 story building at the site. According to the Long Beach Press-Telegram, yesterday's revisions to the plan would allow 275 residential units (rather than 325), 155,000 square feet of retail space (rather than 191,000), a 100 room hotel, and a 4,175 square foot science center. The development would have a 12 story residential building and two six story buildings.
