US-based real estate investment and development firm Urban Commons has unveiled plans for a $250M waterfront entertainment destination in Long Beach, California.

The Queen Mary Island will be located on 65 acres of waterfront land surrounding the iconic Queen Mary ship.

The project, designed by the US-based architecture firm Gensler, will be a self-contained destination with landscapes, amenities and recreational experiences.

It will feature an outdoor amphitheatre, an indoor adventure park, a 2,400ft boardwalk, cafes and bars, eclectic retail shops and a 200-room hotel.

Urban Commons is collaborating with London-based Urban Legacies to bring to life Urban Adventure, a 150,000 sq ft facility, which will include California's first indoor ice climbing wall, surfing, canyoning, skydiving, and zip lining activities, a trampoline park and much more.

Taylor Woods, principal of Urban Commons, said: "Queen Mary Island will hold something for everyone, whether that is adrenaline-inducing activities or simply enjoying live entertainment and dining near the waterfront.

"We are genuinely excited about creating a place for people to connect, interact and make memories and look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with the City as we bring this highly-anticipated destination to life."
