The BEAT is about bringing back the pulse of the once vibrant Uptown District through culture, music and the arts.
The project seeks to tap into the rich, cultural history of Uptown Long Beach. The BEAT will bring together local Long Beach businesses and community amenities to create yet another place that Long Beach residents can be proud to be part of.
The BEAT will provide a venue for artists to collaborate, crafters to make,
musicians to perform, chefs to create, poets to express and enthusiasts to experience.
The passion and authenticity of local Long Beach artists,
musicians, crafters, and creative souls will activate and
reignite a thriving Uptown rhythm.
At the heart of The BEAT is the Michelle Obama Library, a state of the art center, serving the community through educational experiences.
Please take a look around, and please note that all conceptual drawings are subject to evolve.
