The 215,000 square-foot development at the southwest corner of East 2nd Street and Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), the aptly named “2nd & PCH,” is scheduled to open in October 2019. Owned and developed by CenterCal Properties, the shopping center replaces the aging SeaPort Marina Hotel and is slated to feature a host of amenities, including fire pits, wi-fi stations, bicycle lanes and landscaping.
In addition to generating sales tax revenue for the city, the center has the potential to become a major gathering place for city residents, 3rd District Councilmember Suzie Price told the Business Journal. “Beyond having a major aesthetic improvement to the southeast entrance to Long Beach, this new shopping center will provide a place for residents and visitors to the area to enjoy the waterfront,” she said. “I have been waiting a long time to have a place to go to with my family for an evening out where there are lots of great dining options and shops to visit. I know many of my friends and neighbors feel the same way.”
