The City of Long Beach, in partnership with City Ventures, Inc., yesterday celebrated the groundbreaking of Huxton, a solar powered, all-electric, townhome condominium community in the East Village. The project will be one of the first single-family condominium housing developments to be built in downtown Long Beach in almost a decade.

Located at 227 Elm Ave., Huxton will consist of 40 three-story townhome condominium units situated above a garage, a community room building, outdoor courtyards, and an integrated pedestrian paseo that will activate the streetscape and promote connectivity in the Downtown. The contemporary development will also incorporate several advanced technology, energy-efficient and water-efficient features to promote a healthy, active, and earth-friendly lifestyle.

The transit-oriented development lies within walking-distance of the Metro Blue Line and the Long Beach Transit Gallery, and will offer key mobility amenities, including on-site bike storage and a bike repair room for residents.

“We are excited to take part in the revitalization of the Downtown and work with the City to help create something really meaningful to the residents of Long Beach,” said Phil Kerr, Chief Executive Officer of City Ventures, Inc. “We are not only a leader in the development of infill communities, but as an eco-friendly homebuilder, we pride ourselves on offering solar powered, all-electric new homes such as here at Huxton.”

City Ventures, Inc. is a California development company with extensive experience in development, redevelopment, and construction in coastal urban infill areas throughout California. In addition, City Ventures has acquired former Redevelopment Agency properties at 4800 and 5100 Long Beach Boulevard, and plans to develop 69 townhomes.
