PlaceWorks is excited to announce that we’ve been selected by the City of Long Beach to lead the Downtown Shoreline Vision and Plan Update. The 500-acre Shoreline area is the gateway between Long Beach’s downtown and waterfront, and its vibrant and diverse mix of uses include high-rise condos, offices, a shopping center, the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Long Beach Convention Center, two marinas, wetlands, beaches, and the site of the Long Beach Grand Prix.
The Plan represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to craft a community-based vision for the future that embraces the Shoreline area’s wide range of stakeholders, accommodates continued growth, and proactively addresses sea level rise. After the visioning process, PlaceWorks will prepare a specific plan, complete the appropriate environmental reviews, and guide the Plan through local, state, and California Coastal Commission approval processes.
PlaceWorks and our team members— Studio One Eleven, HR&A Advisors, Moffat & Nichol International, Fehr & Peers, Fuscoe Engineering, Inc., LSA, SWCA Environmental Consultants, and McCabe & Company—are honored to be part of this notable project, and we look forward to working with the community and City of Long Beach.
