Long Beach, CA


“Orizaba” is the conversion of an existing industrial 50K SF “complex” in the Long Beach Artists District into ten build-to-use industrial/office suites ranging from 2,500 to 7,050 SF. The extensive renovation includes new building entries and fenestration, a 7,500 SF addition highlighted by a new glass curtainwall at the south façade, two story office spaces, new overhead service doors, new roofing and skylights, new street trees, and new on-site landscaped parking. The project builds on the rugged industrial character of the five connected existing buildings that vary both in their structural systems and their exterior materiality (from stucco, to concrete, to metal siding).
