Long Beach Port Moving to New Administration Building

Earlier this month, the Long Beach Harbor Department began the three-week process of moving into its new Port Administration Building at the new Long Beach Civic Center.

This department, which manages the Port of Long Beach, left its longtime headquarters in 2014 after it was determined that the building would not be safe in the event of an earthquake. They moved into an interim building while the center was being built.

“We’re all excited to return to the waterfront, where we belong,” said Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero. “Being near the harbor will allow us to work more efficiently with our tenants and fulfill our mission to facilitate trade and be a key engine of the city’s economy.”

Starting Aug. 1, the port’s new address will be 415 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802. Phone numbers and email addresses will stay the same.
