A 30-story hotel project that could drastically alter Long Beach’s skyline could become a reality by 2021.

The proposed 530,000-square-foot project at 100 Ocean Boulevard would bring 429 hotel rooms to the city, and rank among the tallest buildings in Long Beach, Urbanize reported.

American Life LLC, a firm based in Seattle, is developing the project, which has undergone several revisions in the last few years. The firm paid the City of Long Beach $7 million to acquire the vacant site, once the home of the Jergins Trust Building.

In addition to the hotel rooms, there would also be 23,500 square feet of restaurant space, 27,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and parking for 151 vehicles, according to an environmental report published by the city.

Renderings by GBD Architects and RELM portray a tall, thin glass tower with rooftop decks and several terraces. The project will also incorporate the Jergins Tunnel, a pedestrian subway beneath Ocean Boulevard.

Construction would take about 30 months, with an expected completion date in 2021.

Developers have been increasingly turning to the South Bay city as a destination for larger, mixed-use residential projects. A partnership between Plus Development, Pacific Property Partners and a Delaware-based firm are working on securing approvals to build an eight-story multifamily complex with 120 units. There’s also a massive, 700-unit tower underway, slated to rise up to 43 stories. [Urbanize] – Natalie Hoberman
