The Courtyard Lofts, located in Long Beach, is a development of just 16 lofts and made up of two commercial buildings. Where there was once a parking lot, now they have created a communal garden courtyard in the middle of the complex. This project was completed in 2005 and has floor plans ranging from almost 800 sq ft to over 1,400 sq ft. It was also the recipient of the 2009 AIA Housing Award. Some features include; Ultramodern downstairs fireplaces, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchens, some outfitted with gorgeous granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances (including: dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, garbage disposal, gas oven and refrigerator), bright, wall-sized windows, private upstairs master bedroom lofts, complete with private balconies and concrete slab and blond bamboo floors.
