The historic Villa Riviera, where class and elegance spire above the Southern California coast.
Comprised of single-, one- and two-bedroom condominiums, as well as two stunning "horseshoe" penthouses, the building has become one of the most famous-and unrivaled-sites in Long Beach, most notably for its classic oxidized copper roof.
Built in 1928 as homage to Gothic revivalism, the Villa Riviera has survived as a symbol of world-class living-from "own-your-own" cooperatives and fine hotel luxury, to the condominium association of today-and, after more than 80 years, remains a beacon of the West.
Prestige, however, is nothing without recognition: in 1996, the Villa Riviera earned its rightful place on the National Register of Historic Places, ensuring it as one of the most important landmarks in California.
