A New Custom Home Construction Project
The Peninsula, Area 1, Long Beach, California
This property is not for sale
Introducing 30 Dana Place, LB 90802, a new construction custom-home project I was involved with in 2008 with a developer client.
This particular property was originally listed and offered for sale on the MLS as an REO, shortly after the lender foreclosed and then sold it to my client via a traditional escrow.
The subject property is located in “The Peninsula”, the very desirable “Area 1” within the City of Long Beach. During that time and to document the new construction project in the peninsula, we created a unique single-listing website (now a bit dated) to highlight the progress.
In 2007 and just after the beginning of the financial meltdown, this new 4-level custom-home project ran into financial trouble near its completion and unfortunately ultimately selling via a short sale to a local Long Beach Peninsula investor. With the many photos I snapped beginning with the acquisition, the tear-down and through the entire construction phase, I thought it would be a shame and a not a good idea to take down the single-listing website so I will continue to host it.
This post will showcase a good selection of handpicked progress photos from each phase of The Peninsula New Construction Project here in Long Beach so we can continue to share them with our website visitors. To view all of the photos, please visit the project dedicated site. I hope you enjoy perusing these photos and find them as interesting as I have.

The 30 Dana Place home is only two doors away from the sand in the bay side of the Peninsula. The large rectangular lot to the West of our subject property (also highlighted in green) is another property that was under development at that time. The large lot was created by joining two individual parcels.
These are some of the pages from the architectural drawings showing the 4 level floor plan details of The Peninsula property. Based on these plans, the living area of the new 30 Dana Place home is approximately 3,700 square feet.
Note the two stairwells servicing the 4th level observation deck, it is not only convenient, but an important fire safety feature.
