Ensemble, a Phoenix-based real estate firm, is gearing up to build a 142-unit apartment complex in Downtown Long Beach.

The seven-story project, which also calls for ground-floor commercial space, scored approvals from the city’s planning commission last week.

The development, at 500 W. Broadway, would contain 65 studio apartments, 41 one-bedroom units, 32 two-bedroom units and four three-bedroom units, according to Curbed. The ground floor amenities would include retail space, a cafe or market, a small office and an exterior patio.

Ensemble is so stranger to Long Beach. The company owns the Hotel Maya near the Queen Mary and has four multifamily projects in the works in the area, including a 274-unit complex at Pacific Avenue and West 3rd Street and a 112-unit apartment building across from the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, according to its website.
