Construction nears completion on 142-unit mixed-use project in DTLB


Construction is nearing completion on a seven-story, 142-unit mixed-use development at the southwest corner of Broadway and Magnolia dubbed “The Magnolia,” just across the street from Long Beach’s Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse.

Approved by the Long Beach Planning Commission back in May 2017 and breaking ground in July of 2020, the development is part of a heavy list of under-construction or near-complete projects in the Downtown area, including the Shoreline Gateway tower, The Broadstone Promenade, The Aster, and the Broadway Block project.

Designed by Urban Architecture Lab out of Los Angeles, the space will have 191 parking stalls across three levels—one subterranean, one ground floor, and the second floor—while the residential units will occupy stories three through seven.The complex will include 65 studios ranging in square footage from 566 to 662; 41 one-bedroom units all at 759 square feet; 32 two-bedroom units all at 1,021 square feet; and four three-bedroom units all at 1,263 square feet.

None of the units will be marked for affordable housing since the project was entitled before Long Beach passed its inclusionary ordinance.

“Broadway and Magnolia Apartments is a welcome addition to the ongoing revitalization experienced throughout the City,” Mayor Robert Garcia said when the project became first entitled.According to Ensemble, the firm behind its construction, the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
