Long Beach , CA
Snyder Langston was selected by Developer Diversified Realty to construct this high profile retail entertainment center that includes approximately 370,000 s.f. of waterfront restaurants and entertainment venues, including a 14-screen state-of-the-art Crown Theater and GameWorks, a 40,000 s.f. entertainment destination. The Pike at Rainbow Harbor will be divided into several distinct zones, each featuring its own architecture, lighting and landscaping to provide a unique entertainment experience. Among the project’s signature elements are: a pedestrian bridge over Shoreline Drive that is reminiscent of the Cyclone Racer wooden roller coaster that operated in the City’s historic Pike amusement zone from 1930 to 1968; a turn-of-the-century carousel with hand-carved horses; a town square serving as a community gathering place and featuring a large plaza for events and programs such as concerts, art shows and other activities.
