The City of Long Beach released a Request for Proposals (RFP) yesterday for aeronautical development of all or portions of approximately 27 acres at Long Beach Airport (LGB). The availability of such a large amount of land is rare, with the last large-scale development at the Airport taking place in the 1980s and early 1990s.
The Lakewood Parcel, approximately 10 acres, is located on the east side of the Airport at the corner of North Lakewood Boulevard and East Spring Street, immediately above the underground Los Cerritos Channel Stormwater Capture Facility. This parcel is available for development as a result of the shortening of Runway 8R-26L, in accordance with the Airport’s Airfield Geometry Study.
The RFP specifies that development of the site should be intended for aviation-related purposes that are complementary and respectful of the adjacent existing businesses. Proposal submissions are due by 11:00 a.m. on Monday, June 7, 2021. To obtain a copy of the RFP Number AP21-042, click here.
