Hard Hat Tour of New Civic Center and Public Library
Monday, June 3, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$30
The revitalization of Long Beach, California’s downtown civic core is nearly complete as construction comes to an end on the highly-anticipated Long Beach Civic Center (LBCC). Slated for completion this summer, the LBCC is the largest public-private development of its kind on the West Coast. The Civic Center campus totals nearly 600,000 square feet divided among three structures: a new City Hall (270,000 square feet), a new headquarters facility for the Port of Long Beach (237,000 square feet), and a new main library (92,000 square-feet), which will replace the existing main library and sits atop an underground parking structure. The City Hall and Port Headquarters buildings each stand 11 stories tall and include below-grade parking. Roadway and pedestrian improvements, public plazas, and pathways weave the six-city-block site together. Nearby historic Lincoln Park is also being revitalized as part of the project and will be completed following the completion of the new Library and the demolition of the existing library. Plenary Properties Long Beach, a consortium that includes Plenary Group, Clark Construction Group, and Skidmore, Ownings & Merrill is responsible for the financing, development, design, construction and long-term operations and maintenance of the Civic Center. Plenary Properties Long Beach is also providing master planning services for a future mixed-use, transit-oriented, private development on the existing City Hall site.
