The Long Beach Planning Commission approved the construction of a seven-story, mixed-use development on the parking lot just south of the Broadlind at Broadway and Linden in DTLB.
The Residences at Linden will provide Downtown with 82 new units, 4,091 sq. ft. of commercial space, all above a four-level underground garage that will have 135 parking spaces for cars (32 above requirements and beyond excessive when the space could have been used for more housing) and 20 bike stalls at 135 Linden Ave.
There will be 14 different floor plans, including 69 one-bedroom units and 13 two-bedroom units, ranging from 600 to 998 sq. ft. per unit.
The project will take over two .41-acre parcels—for a total of .82 acres—and, according to its proposal, will respect “proper massing, street wall design, pedestrian orientation, compatibility with surrounding buildings, outdoor space, and natural materials such as smooth plaster, limestone and sunbrella fabric, facades that offer a variety of articulation and fenestration, colors that respect neighboring structures, and architectural continuity with the adjacent historic Broadlind Hotel.”
Part of this “continuity” will be the use of arches and semi-circular window treatments at the base of the building as well as awnings that are similar to that of the Broadlind (which is underway to becoming a boutique hotel).
