The conversion of Park Tower, a 119,287-square-foot office skyscraper, into a student housing community has been planned, discussed, and filed with the City of Long Beach. This will be California State University, Long Beach's first off-campus student housing facility, resulting in many changes. This is huge, and many people are looking forward to it. This student housing will offer several amenities and features for its students. It will make it easier for them to find accommodation where they can stay and not worry about anything. 

Fountain Residential Partners will be in charge of creating the adaptive reuse project, and they intend to start construction in the latter half of 2023. The property will include 539 beds in residential suites designed to resemble on-campus housing, each with a sizable lounge area for students to choose from according to their budgets, needs, and preferences. This is a huge deal because of the number of students applying. This means that more students will be able to apply to the university. 

The project will use both passive and active techniques for sustainability, with the goal of earning LEED Gold certification. Using natural ventilation and lighting and maximising solar performance are among the green building techniques planned for the project. 

Also suggested for the location are shuttle service to the campus and the preservation of an existing Metro bus shelter. Transportation is an essential factor for any successful student accommodation, and this is no exception. Students will find it easy to go to college every day without waking up two hours earlier just to be there on time.

The project is expected to be finished in the fall of 2025, and we will start welcoming students right after that. The property will offer features and amenities for guests to make use of during their stay, including all-inclusive utility bills if needed, Wi-Fi, and much more.
