Breakers Hotel

Architects Walker & Eisen designed the luxury hotel, the Breakers, which opened in 1926. It was a Hilton Hotel from 1938 to 1947, before its most recent use as a senior living facility. In January 2018, investment group Pacific6 announced they will complete a full restoration of the hotel. 

 

Ocean Center

Renowned architecture firm Meyer and Holler designed Ocean Center, a Long Beach landmark, which opened in 1929 as an office building. In 2018, investment group Pacific6 acquired the building and it is currently undergoing adaptive reuse as a residential complex and a museum.

Former First Congressional Church Parsonage

The parsonage of the First Congressional Church has survived three prior moves and prepares for a fourth to make way for a new residential complex by Holland Partner Group. The Queen Anne Victorian cottage was built in 1887 and is listed as a local landmark. It has been at its current location at 640 Pacific Avenue since 1927. It will be relocated by the end of 2018 by the developer as part of the mitigation measures of the multi-family residential project.
