Ocean Boulevard Condominiums
Giving new contours to Long Beach’s skyline as well as a seaside waterfront garden, the Ocean Boulevard Condominiums is the first project of its kind to address the needs of an emerging residential community in this coastal city.
Building on such a prominent site requires the development engage the civic realm in addition to providing the privacy and comfort necessary for a residential enclave on the edge of the city. The site is located along an urban seam that bisects downtown Long Beach: to the north, the office towers and civic center that serve a 9-to-5 corporate constituency; to the west a vibrant shopping and entertainment district activates the historic core. The Ocean Boulevard Condominiums mediates these parallel urbanisms that exist independent from one another. As such, the site plan comprises an assembly of two individual towers, as opposed to a single point tower.
Two towers, 31- and 36-floors-high, are composed of 240 individual dwelling units that vary in plan, section, and proportion, each with its own balcony with views of the Pacific Ocean, and the city’s urban landscape.
