LA’s downtown isn’t the only one undergoing a major transformation, LA’s little brother Long Beach is also in the mitts of a construction boom. Downtown Long Beach has over 20 projects either already
under construction, or proposed for development. A few of the developments that will drastically change the image of Downtown LB will be a $250 Entertainment Center adjacent to the Queen Mary,
a 35 story Residential tower (set to be the new tallest tower for LB), a flashy new Civic Center , and remodel of the Aquarium of the Pacific. Curbed LA compiled a list of developments planned that has me pretty excited to see what DTLB will eventually grow into.

Even though SouthLA focusing on South Los Angeles and surrounding urban areas, I would love to shine some light on LA’s commerical core, Downtown. Now give or take 15 years ago Downtown was a desolate ghost town after 7pm, now its another thriving live, work, play area of Los Angeles. Well now there are several huge projects planned for Downtown. Due to the amount of projects I’m just going to list them, peruse at your leisure.
