In the midst of what some have called a renaissance, Long Beach has seen a mass uptick in the number of residential developments breaking ground. Countless companies are behind projects that will bring thousands of new units to the city. Ensemble Real Estate Solutions & Investments, based in the city, is leading this resurgence. It has two residential projects under construction, another already approved and a fourth in the pre-development stages – for a total of approximately 718 units

“Ensemble has been committed to Long Beach, and specifically Downtown Long Beach, for over 20 years,” Tyson Sayles, principal of the multi-family and mixed-use properties group for Ensemble, said. “We’re big believers in Downtown Long Beach, not just in the short term but in the long term because it’s an amazing, diverse city that has fantastic pedestrian, bicycle and public transportation amenities, as well as civic and cultural amenities.”

The company is not new to Long Beach. Founded in Los Angeles in 1990, Ensemble opened its Long Beach headquarters in 1996. Though its current residential projects represent its first foray into residential development in the city, Ensemble has made significant investments in Long Beach over the years, such as the ground-up development of Residence Inn in downtown, and the purchase and renovation of the World Trade Center, the property now known as the Hotel Maya, and the 444 W. Ocean high-rise office building, where the company’s headquarters is located.
