Just Another Day In SouthLA
Long Beach is sprucing it a bit, converting the building that housed Edison International, City Hall East into Edison Lofts. Once finished, Edison Lofts will offer 134 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments with a groundfloor cafe and live/work units. Cliff Ratkovich, who leads the group buying the building, says he hopes to “turn it into a beautiful jewel on the skyline,” adding that the rehabbed building will no longer be a barrier between downtown Long Beach and the East Village Arts District. Asking/Selling price, $2.1 million.
