Two residential developments in downtown San Pedro have recently passed milestones.
The Vue, a 16-story glass high-rise on 5th Street, poured the concrete on its top floor. The 195-foot building will contain 318 condominiums and will be completed in late 2008.
The Vue offers panoramic 360° views of the harbor, Palos Verdes Peninsula and the metropolis at large. On a clear day, the downtown LA skyline and Hollywood sign are visible.

The Bank Lofts, two dark red buildings at 8th and Mesa Streets, is preparing to open models and welcome its first homeowners this month.

The models and almost-completed units are in the building on the east side of Mesa Street.
The 89-unit development is named for the 1920s-era Bank of San Pedro, the façade of which has been preserved, retrofitted and integrated into the current development.
Models are expected to open in mid-April and the first residents will move in at the end of the month.
