Two historic buildings in Downtown Long Beach, the Breakers Hotel and the Ocean Center Building, are set to reopen after undergoing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of renovations by Pacific6 Enterprises, a group of investors headed by John Molina. The Breakers, built in 1926, and the Ocean Center, built in 1929, are both located on Ocean Boulevard and have undergone renovations costing nearly $200 million and $80 million respectively.
The Breakers is set to reopen as Fairmont The Breakers, a luxury boutique hotel, in January 2024, while the Ocean Center has been converted into luxury apartments and is set to open on May 1. Amenities for both buildings include modern appliances, rooftop terraces, and private fitness centers. The reopening of these buildings is expected to elevate the guest experience and provide jobs for over 230 full and part-time employees.
