Condo in Long Beach’s historic Cooper Arms asks $424,900

The 6th floor unit has great views from an architectural classic

This one-bedroom, one-bath condo unit in Long Beach’s Cooper Arms building features some of the views across the city that the building was known for when it was first built in 1924.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building was highly praised by the Los Angeles Times upon completion. The paper predicted that “this magnificent building will become a landmark that may be seen from ocean vessels miles away.”

Today, the swanky 12-story high-rise still stands tall over Downtown Long Beach, though many of the surrounding buildings have dwarfed it considerably.

This 1,029-square-foot unit on the sixth floor looks to have been updated a bit over the years, and the interior style is eclectic.

The bathroom has been given a tropical makeover, while the kitchen is outfitted with some truly unique custom cabinetry that future residents will probably have some strong opinions on one way or the other.

The arched doorways throughout the apartment are in keeping with the building’s Period Revival architecture. The structure was designed by noted architectural firm Curlett and Beelman, who also designed the Talmadge Apartments and Park Plaza Hotel. Asking price is $424,900.
