Studio One Eleven

200 Ocean

Location: Long Beach, CA
Client: Milan Capital Management
Type: Housing & Re-Use
An office tower at 200 W. Ocean Boulevard is currently being converted into a 106-unit apartment building, with townhomes at the top level and lofts and amenity space on the ground floor.

Studio One Eleven designed the adaptive re-use of the property from an underperforming Class B office into residential using sustainable materials and drought-tolerant landscaping.

Originally designed by AC Martin and Associates in 1967, the building was commissioned by the General Telephone Company of California, the largest independent telephone company in the United States during the days of the Bell System, to serve as the headquarters for the southern region. The new residential units will have exposed concrete walls in the corridors, tall ceilings and many with balconies with either ocean or city views.
