Superblock waterfront property in Long Beach to be soldPosted: Updated:
A Garden City-based developer is in contract to purchase the 6-acre Superblock property on the Long Beach boardwalk that has been vacant for more than four decades.
The Engel Burman Group has not yet solidified what will become of the vacant lot between Riverside and Long Beach boulevards, but says it is pursuing a mixture of apartments and condos, and maybe even a shopping area.
“It’ll be nice to see something other than a dirt lot there,” says one resident.
Others who live behind the waterfront property, however, may lose their ocean views.
News 12 is told that that the developer has not requested any tax breaks as part of its purchase and that any plan for the waterfront property would comply with Long Beach zoning codes.
The developer also says several meetings will be held with the community before any plans are set into motion.
