Shoreline Gateway, developed by Ledcor Properties and Anderson Pacific with partners Qualico and Lantower Residential, provides 315 ultra-luxury apartments in Long Beach, California. The 35-story, mixed-use tower marks the second phase of one of the largest developments downtown as well as the tallest building in the city.
Located at Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue, Shoreline Gateway is the companion building to The Current, a 17-story, 223-unit luxury apartment tower developed by the same team. The two buildings are connected through a 10,000-square-foot shared plaza with premium retail, resident amenities, and an art installation called “Neap Tide” by Jud Fine and Barbara McCarren.
“Ledcor is pleased to deliver its fourth high-rise residential tower to downtown Long Beach, enhancing the skyline and investing in this dynamic waterfront gateway city,” said Pat Patterson, president of Ledcor Development. “Shoreline Gateway is now the tallest residential tower in the city, offering unparalleled finishes, resident amenities, and experiences, with state-of-the-art features that set a new standard of modern waterfront luxury living on the West Coast.”
Shoreline Gateway is comprised of a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments between 616 and 1,700 square feet, with two-story penthouses up to 2,679 square feet on the 33rd, 34th, and 35th floors. The tower also features approximately 6,500 square feet of commercial space and five levels of subterranean parking for 470 vehicles.
A community lounge and living room on the 34th floor, Eventide, offers 270-degree panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, the downtown skyline, the Los Angeles skyline, and Orange County. One level up, High Tide features a shimmering rooftop pool and spa, a fire pit, a barbecue and dining area, and an entertainment deck. Other amenities include a bocce ball court, a gaming area, a fitness center, a yoga room, a pet spa and dog park, a bike room with lockers and repair tools, workstations, a conference room, and an automated package center with refrigerated lockers for perishable deliveries. In addition, a 700-gallon jellyfish tank is a statement piece in the main resident and leasing lobby.
The project, which has been 18 years in the making, is the last of the former Redevelopment Agency projects in Long Beach and has set a new benchmark for environmental sustainability. The two-tower development is the first LEED-Neighborhood Development Gold project in the city.
“Since 2004, Anderson Pacific proposed a vision for this site, which was enthusiastically shared by the community and the city of Long Beach. Overcoming the numerous challenges resulted in the construction of The Current beginning in 2014,” said Anderson Pacific president and CEO Jim Anderson. “At long last, we have delivered a truly iconic tower that has been envisioned all these years and have created a bona fide gateway into downtown Long Beach from the east, as well as a wonderful anchor to the East Village Arts District and surrounding community. We greatly appreciate the members of the community, the city, and our partners who have worked with us all these years to make this vision a reality.”
