Construction Starts at The Current Residential High-Rise Tower in Long Beach

Largo Concrete began work at The Current residential high-rise tower in Long Beach, California this week. The concrete frame building features 18 total levels, 12 residential, 1 retail and commercial ground floor and 4 parking levels, two of which are below grade, an amenities roof deck with pool and helipad above. The 194’ tall, 415,000gsf project sits on a 43,700sf site located on the northwest corner of Ocean Blvd. and Lime St. features 223 residential units, 22,608sf of commercial space and 328 parking stalls.

Largo is working with General Contractor Driver Urban, BAR Architects in conjunction with Rockefeller Partners Architects and Structural Engineer Nabih Youssef & Associates to have concrete poured out by August 28, 2015. One of the major challenges of this project will be the coordination with the exterior façade contractors all vying for crane time in order to meet the schedule. Mounting the pre-cast concrete, aluminum and glass architectural panels to the exterior of the building requires an extraordinary amount of embed coordination and accuracy. This is the first development of its kind in over a decade in Long Beach with a scheduled completion in summer of 2016.
