The Edison Building located at 100 Long Beach Boulevard was originally designed by Kenneth S. Wing, who is today regarded as one of Long Beach’s greatest architects. The building, first constructed in the 1950s, represents Wing’s signature curtain wall style with dynamic curves, industrial materials, and unique integration of light.
Working with The Kor Group and Ratkovich Development, JR van Dijs, Inc. is acting as construction manager on a project to convert this once-abandoned office building to over 150 urban lofts. The building, located on the northeast corner of 1st Street and Long Beach Boulevard, will reactivate a once-thriving corner of Downtown and unify the East Village Arts District and the Downtown commerce community.
With retail space on the ground floor and the addition of rooftop penthouses, this project is sure to play an important role in the future of the city.
