Construction on Long Beach’s tallest tower, Shoreline Gateway, is underway

New, 2 comments

It should be open by the end of 2021

The tower that will grow to be Long Beach’s tallest broke ground in the city’s downtown on Thursday, developers Ledcor Properties Inc. and Anderson Pacific LLC announced.

Called Shoreline Gateway, the 35-story tower “will add an icon to our skyline,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We’ve been waiting for this project and excited that it will bring over 300 new homes to Long Beach.”

Shoreline Gateway sits at the corner of Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue. It will hold 315 “ultra-luxury” apartments—a mix of studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 580 square feet to 2,480 square feet. The building will be topped by two-story penthouses on the 34th and 35th floors. The design team for the project includes Studio One Eleven and Carrier Johnson + Culture, with landscape architecture by RELM.

The Shoreline Gateway structure is next to a 17-story apartment building called the Current, also developed by Ledcor and Anderson Pacific. The two projects are connected by a 10,000-square-foot plaza. The Current, which holds just over 200 apartments, opened in 2016.

Shoreline Gateway is scheduled for completion in late 2021, but a taller project is already in the works in Long Beach’s downtown. Called West Gateway, the development would rise to 40 stories and be part of a six-building mixed-use complex directly north of the World Trade Center.
