Pike at Rainbow Harbor Groundbreaking Delay

The City of Long Beach recently learned that the developer of the Pike at Rainbow Harbor project, Developers Diversified Realty Corp. (DDR) has announced the delay of the project's groundbreaking.

"Although the City is disappointed by DDR's decision to delay the groundbreaking, we are committed to working with DDR to resolve the remaining technical issues so that the much anticipated Pike at Rainbow Harbor project can move forward," said Long Beach Mayor Beverly O'Neill.

DDR has indicated to the City that it will break ground on the project once the City has issued the related parking structure/public improvement bonds.

The City has recently sent correspondence to DDR's corporate headquarters and has conducted conference calls with DDR representatives outlining the remaining issues needing resolution prior to the sale of the bonds.

"The City cannot accomplish its part of the project without the cooperation of DDR. We very much expect that DDR will provide the remaining assurances necessary so that the bonds can rapidly be sold for the parking structure and other public improvements," said Long Beach City Manager Henry Taboada.
