Long Beach Civic Center


Clark Construction recently completed the Long Beach Civic Center (LBCC). The project includes a new city hall and civic chambers, a headquarters for the Port of Long Beach, and a public library. The $414,000,000 and 600,000 sq. ft. project replaced maintenance-plagued, seismically-unsound structures with four new civic buildings that play a vital role in the City’s efforts to revitalize downtown, and without added cost to taxpayers. The state-of-the-art Civic Center development was delivered under an innovative public-private partnership (P3), utilizing a design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBFOM) contract.  Skidmore Owings and Merrill is the architect, and Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate is the co-developer. The project is the nation and North America’s first municipal DBFOM, and is also the first North American hybrid DBFOM to combine public infrastructure and private development within a single project. Targeting LEED® Gold certification, the new Civic Center optimizes operations and maintenance, maximizes street parking, and expands bike infrastructure to create a hierarchy and quality of place – one that befits the city’s dynamic center for culture, recreation, education, and government.
