LONG BEACH. The Long Beach Zoning Board of Appeals is meeting tonight at 7 at City Hall, 1 W. Chester Street, to vote on the proposed Superblock development. The city had been locked in litigation about the property — a vacant eyesore near the boardwalk for decades — since 2011, but it is settled. The developer has proposed two 160-foot towers with 522 units, which would be the tallest buildings in Long Beach. Check Patrick Whittle's Twitter updates @pxwhittle.
