One of the best kept secrets in Long Beach and the Emerald Villas condos located at 555 Maine Street. This is a pretty large complex located near 6th street and the Los Angeles River and near Cesar Chavez Park. The complex was originally built in 1991 and at the time was a huge addition to the area. The large majority of condos located here feature two bedrooms with some three bedroom also built as well at an approximate 1,155 square feet. Some condos have the nice feature of overlooking the centrally located swimming pool and spa area while others look out upon the street. Both are great views with a location that's situated in the heart of the Downtown Long Beach area.
Real Estate prices tend of be much more affordable than Downtown condos located on Ocean Blvd. For example, there is currently a two bedroom, two bath condo with an approximate 908 square feet that is on the market for sale at $399,000. Another two bedroom, two bath condo with an approximate 786 square feet as also on the market for $398,900. Monthly homeowners association dues run $310.00 a month and include water and trash according to one of these listings. Amenities also include subterranean parking which is a huge plus in the downtown area, community pool and spa, a fitness room and a roof top deck to take in the great views of the city. Many of the units include central air which is a nice bonus during the hot Sommer months. Last year we saw at least 15 properties come on the market for sale and this year we have already seen 5 condos listed so there always seems to be a good inventory to choose from.
