City Hall has been closed to the public for over a year due to COVID-19 restrictions on indoor gatherings, but an effort to bring City Council meetings back to an in-person setting was initiated last month.
The developer of the Long Beach Civic Center mid-block project—a massive mixed-use development slated for the site of the old city hall building—has pulled out of the project due to economic uncertainty brought on by the pandemic.
The Long Beach Planning Commission got its first peek at the updated plans for the new Civic Center project, as members of the Plenary Edgemoor development team finished a day’s worth of presentations with a stop inside the City Council chambers Thursday night.
Long Beach City Council unanimously voted Tuesday night to move forward with Plenary-Edgemoor Civic Partners (PECP) as the architecture team chosen to build the new Civic Center.
Plenary/Edgemoor Civic Partnership (PECP) is one step closer to possibly designing Long Beach’s future civic center, following last night’s vote at the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners meeting.
