Rinaldi's Deli To Leave Manhattan BeachDec 07, 2021 09:41AM ● By Jeanne Fratello
The Original Rinaldi's Deli, located on Sepulveda Blvd. in the Goat Hill Plaza shopping center, will leave Manhattan Beach this month in advance of the new senior housing complex being built at the center.
Rinaldi's will have its last day in Manhattan Beach on December 24.
"We want to thank our Manhattan Beach customers for their loyal patronage in the 12 years we have been serving great food at the Goat Hill Plaza," said Ping Lai Tan Chen, who along with Michael Banuelos are the partners who run Rinaldi's.
Chen added that customers who are craving Rinaldi's famous Godfather, Epic Fatboy, or Chris Club can still find those at Rinaldi's El Segundo (323 Main Street) or LAX (6171 W. Century Blvd.) locations.
Sunrise Senior Living Project Will Replace Goat Hill Plaza
Construction on the Sunrise Senior Living Project is slated to begin in 2022. The Goat Hill Plaza shopping center, located on the southeast corner of Sepulveda Blvd. and 5th St., will be demolished to make room for the new senior living facility.
According to HPI Architecture, the new 3-story, 80,000 square foot facility will create 95 units on the sloped, 1.2 acre site. It will include indoor dining spaces, multiple activity rooms, a physical therapy suite, an entertainment room, a salon, outdoor patios and courtyards with lounge seating, firepits, and outdoor dining along with roof terraces.
Earlier this year, Sunrise Senior Living of Manhattan Beach was recognized with a SAGE Award from the Building Industry Association of Southern California's for the Best 55+ Assisted Living or Special Needs Community “On the Boards."
