City of Long Beach Façade Improvements Third & Pine

Kaplan Chen Kaplan has been working with the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Long Beach for design of building facades in the central city and nearby areas. The project at this urban corner is for an important but underutilized commercial area in the middle of new housing and a specialty shopping district. The project utilized imagery from earlier stores in Long Beach in order to be compatible with surrounding historic buildings and to evoke the spirit of the original active shopping streets. All projects are subject to review by the Redevelopment Agency, the City of Long Beach Planning Department and the City’s Historic Preservation Officer.
