Long Beach Real PCH and Second Development
October 15th, 2009 7:51 AM
I had the opportunity yesterday to hear a presentation on a proposed development plan for the 2nd and PCH property where the hotel currently sits.  It's a crazy intersection for traffic and like the speaker said, a development on that corner could make it worse.  But my favorite thing he said was it is the gateway to Long Beach for many that are visiting.  You get off the 405 at 7th/22 exit and enter the Eastern side of the City from Studebaker.  You come up PCH from Seal Beach and you are at that intersection.  Not very impressive and then when you get to that corner - less than a block from the Ocean, the empty lot in front of the Hotel greets you.  It would be wonderful to have a new development on that corner.  It would contribute to revenue for the City, show us as progressive and put a 'live/work' community befitting of the 21st century right at the entrance to our wonderful hometown.  This is a difficult problem the City is trying to solve, whether it's what to build, how to handle the traffic or just getting everybody to agree something needs to be done on that corner.  I for one vote for moving forward.  I don't know specifically what that means but I liked what I saw and heard yesterday.  This is not a plan for that intersection it is one proposal the City is considering.  If you want to see and hear more about this proposal check out www.secondandpch.com  I'd love to hear what you think about one of the proposals for this intersection.  We are still years away from getting something done but wouldn't it be great to know the plan is moving forward.
