Olive Court: A Model for Reclaiming the Boulevard

Olive Court: A Model for Reclaiming the Boulevard

Livable Places

Southern California cities and towns are crisscrossed by unattractive thoroughfares lined with mini-malls and low slung commercial buildings. The City of Long Beach and Livable Places are trying to break that unsightly pattern with the recently completed Olive Court. The thoughtfully designed Olive Court is a model for building medium density along boulevards backed by neighborhood of single family homes. Join us for a cup of coffee, a tour of Olive Court and a discussion with Livable Places, Studio E Architects and the City of Long Beach partners who put it all together.
