Permitted uses include three stories + rooftop deck configured into: Multi-Family upto 4 units, boutique hotel, or two “Live Work” SFRs.

This property is located in the Downtown Huntington Beach resort area within a few blocks of 30+ restaurants, hotels, stores, shops, entertainment, and the Huntington Beach Pier.
