When it comes to construction in the Los Angeles area, Downtown LA hogs the spotlight, with everything from skyscrapers to seven-story apartment buildings springing up from South Park to the Arts District.
But another downtown—downtown Long Beach—has caught the attention of developers, too. A flurry of real estate activity is overtaking the city, where an estimated $3.5 billion worth of construction is either underway or in the pipeline this fiscal year, according to Mayor Robert Garcia.
