Long Beach Boulevard / Midtown Specific Plan

PlaceWorks created the new Midtown Specific Plan to stimulate private and public improvements. This plan establishes an equitable balance between mobility modes, applies a hybrid form-based zoning approach, and creates a series of corridor open spaces to stimulate revitalization and investment. Just a few years after adoption, the City broke ground on 95 affordable housing units, a street plaza (the result of closing off Rhea Street), and ground-floor retail space to be occupied by a YMCA Youth Institute, a health clinic, and a cafe.
