Construction of 32 townhomes in Bixby Knolls takes step forward, renderings released

Initially announced in 2022, a project set to raze what is currently a commercial space and parking lot in order to construct 32, three-story townhomes at the southwest corner of Orange Avenue and San Antonio Drive in Bixby Knolls took a step forward after the City of Long Beach conducted a study saying the project was viable.

As first reported by Urbanize LA, the proposed site—currently owned the Palos Verdes Estates-based 4501 Orange LP—could demolish two commercial buildings along with a surface lot and empty lot in order to make home for six buildings holding onto 32, three-story townhomes. Garages will be on the ground floor while the two stories above it will creating the living spaces; each will have three bedrooms and two parking spaces.

Led by suburban designer Summa Architecture, known for similar architecture throughout the southland, the project requires a zone alteration since it is currently zoned solely for commercial space; the study acknowledges that the zone change is possible—meaning the project will likely be approved to move forward.
