More housing and commercial space is coming to DTLB as renderings for Studio One Eleven’s design for the empty lot at the southwest corner of 4th and Linden reveal a six-story mixed-use building.
There will be 49 units though it is unclear if any will be affordable; still, there’s hope for the design even if Sares-Regis, the developer leading the specifics, has opted for a stubbier building.
There is, however, a happy urbanist in that it is located within walking distance of metro, groceries, and shopping. Outside of the small details, little is known.
In a recent discussion surrounding The Streets development just west of this proposed project, Michael Bohn, Principal at Studio One Eleven, noted that they’ve been approaching design through “integrating back” into the community so that “sidewalks [and] streetlights and trees [are the same] as the adjacent neighborhoods.”
This design reflects that: Park[d] Plaza, the public space that features an Aaron De La Cruz mural as its floor with its now-well-known yellow chairs, are reflected in the design. Yellow and gray like the mural, there are also hints of De La Cruz’s geometrical, maze-y lines as details on the outside of the building.
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
