“The P3 method was selected because it enabled the City to procure a new Civic Center without any bond issues, tax measures or voter approvals, and included over 100 outreach sessions. This method also facilitated design and operational innovation from the P3 developers; provided a high level of 40-year life cycle maintenance for the new Civic Center; and integrated significantly increased private real estate development of the downtown area through the City’s contribution of land.”

Director of Economic and Public Development, City of Long Beach
Project description
Edgemoor is the co-developer of the project that consists of a new civic center, a new City Hall, Main Library, revitalized Lincoln Park, and a new headquarters for the Port Authority.
The new civic center will be enlivened by new commercial development on parcels of land monetized on behalf of the City to support financing of the project, such that the City is paying no more for its new facilities than it did for the old facilities in operating costs. In total, there are six new buildings, three new parking garages, and related infrastructure and landscaping. It will occupy 15 acres/6 city blocks in downtown Long Beach.
