Building History

The City of Long Beach said of this civic amenity in 2018: "The Alamitos Bay Marina opened in the late 1950’s and features 1,624 slips for recreational boaters. Alamitos Bay Marina is located on the east side of Long Beach, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Second Street, near Belmont Shore and Naples Island. The Alamitos Bay Marina is currently under-going a $105 million dollar renovation, including replacement of all boat slips, docks, and various aspects of the marina’s infrastructure." (See City of Long Beach, Parks, Recreation and Marine Department, "Alamitos Bay Marina," accessed 10/23/2018.)

A note in the serial, Consulting Engineer, (1961) said of the project: "Moffat & Nichol, Inc., George F. Nicholson, and J.W.B. Blackmon were consulting engineers for the recently completed Long Beach Marina at Alamos [sic] Bay. Four boat basins contain over 1800 slips for craft ranging from 20-ft. to 80-ft. in length." (See Consulting Engineer, vol. 17, 1961, p. 94.)
