In one of the more intriguing projects in DTLB, the former Verizon building at 200 W Ocean—where the boulevard meets Pacific—will be adpatively reused, converting everything above the first floor into housing while saving the ground floor for retail.

The project was entitled by the Planning Commission in 2015 and was originally slated for 86 dwelling units, with 8 two-story penthouses to be added on top of the building (like the Edison did over at 1st and Long Beach Blvd.).

The updated project will now have 98 units, keep the two additional units on the roof with the penthouses as internal demoing begins this week, headed currently by Hopkins Construction.

It is unclear whether the units will be leased or owned as well as if any of the units will be affordable.
