Long Beach’s Ensemble Real Estate Solutions and Investments announced three upcoming projects that will contribute to the reshaping of downtown Long Beach, coinciding with the company’s 20th anniversary.
According to a release issued Wednesday, Ensemble, honored by the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce this year, is in the process of constructing three separate projects: a multi-family project at 207 Seaside Way, a multi-family project at 442 West Ocean and a multi-family development at Magnolia and Broadway.
“We will build assets that match the location and the community. We want to be environmentally sensitive and do projects that are going to last for a long time,” said Ensemble founder Kam Babaoff of the developments.
Ensemble is the investment and real estate company behind the Hotel Maya, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, as well as the nearby Residence Inn, also on Terminal Island.
Passerby can probably recognize the most recent renovation completed by Ensemble: the 444 West Ocean Blvd. building, which has new mod ornamentation and a signature ‘60s-era phone booth aquarium in the lobby and a tenants-only Club Room with retro arcade games.
Notably, the 207 Seaside Way property sits adjacent to the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, next to the $9.3 million Seaside Way Pedestrian Project, or wave-inspired bridge. The project will also feature a rooftop sky lounge and pool.
The company will break ground in July on the five-story, 94-unit residential community with a “boutique hotel” vibe at 442 West Ocean, according to the release. The third downtown project, at Magnolia and Broadway, will feature a 137-unit, high-end multifamily development.
