Bay Shore Condos

Alamitos Bay, Long Beach, CA

This new condo design fronting Alamitos Bay imparts a familiar contemporary aesthetic by use of aged and matured materiality with the use of weathered cedar siding, rough split slate, aged iron wood and accent of copper that will soon patina to exude a sense of maturity so that once built the buildings will seem as if they have always been part of the community.

The development proposes a new park area around the residences to welcome the public to access views of the bay and enjoy passive and active seating, lounging, and protected playing areas. The new community gathering area will include sculptural wood elements, informational pedestals, contemporary light fixtures and drought tolerant indigenous plants.

Proposed photovoltaic cells integrated into the South facade of the residential stair tower will collect energy and light the park with zero energy costs.
