Project Description

The City of Long Beach intends to install improvements at the Pier Plaza. The Plaza is the
gateway to the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier as well as intersection of the Bike and Pedestrian
Pathway east and west segments. HAI designed the beach pathway expansion and
improvements and Pier Parking Lot which were constructed in 2015. This new project focuses
on the upper plaza which is bounded by Condominiums, Restaurants and Businesses. The intent
is to brighten the area with new Festoon Lighting, changing existing light poles with new LED
fixtures, install wayfinding signage and graphics, protect existing trees, new landscaping and
identification signage on Ocean Blvd. Education/interest signage was designed by HAI which
includes historic photos of the Long Beach waterfront and changes that have occurred starting
from 1880. Additionally, local Artists will be providing imagery with painted vignettes on the
concrete sidewalks. HAI has provided design of all elements and is currently providing
construction support.
