Studio 111 Long Beach, CA

Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia announced a new partnership between Shooshani Developers and the California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) that will bring an 800-bed student housing tower, designed by architects Studio One Eleven, to Downtown Long Beach.

The project partners are working toward the implementation of the so-called CSULB Village development, a student-focused mixed-use district that will boost the university’s presence in Downtown Long Beach, as the city’s mayor aims to enliven the district via increased density and pedestrianization improvements.

The new district will include a 22-story mixed-use tower containing student housing and 50 units of university staff housing. The complex will also house 16 meeting rooms, a 5,000-square-foot innovation center, a 10,000-square-foot CSULB-run art gallery and museum, and 45,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

Studio One Eleven maintains one of its two offices in Downtown Long Beach in a recently-renovated portion of a former shopping mall located beside the proposed tower complex. The firm was also in charge of design for the mall renovation project, which repurposed a 34,000-square-foot Nordstrom Rack department store into a creative office suite.
In a statement announcing the new partnership, Michael Bohn, senior principal at Studio One Eleven said, “Once a place for consumption [Downtown Long Beach] is transforming into a vibrant mixed-use community with creative office and now educational-art-innovation components. Hopefully, this will set a foundation for other institutions to look at downtown as a future home.”
