The CityPlace project covers several city blocks in the heart of Downtown Long Beach and occupies the former site of Long Beach Plaza, an enclosed mall that was razed for the redevelopment. The redevelopment also features 341 residential condominium and apartment units, which are not owned by Developers Diversified.The CityPlace redevelopment restored an original city street grid by reopening Fourth and Fifth streets, which were closed to make way for the former Long Beach Plaza. The entire project comprises an eight-square-block area, within walking distance of the Long Beach waterfront that formerly was occupied by the enclosed mall. The residential portion of the project includes Archstone City Place, a 221-unit apartment complex that was developed by a joint venture of Newport Beach-based Buchanan Street Partners and Los Angeles-based PCS Development Inc.
