The khaki crowd, bleary-eyed at 7:45 a.m., crams around the Diedrich coffee hut. Programmers from Cisco Systems Inc., waiting impatiently for their double cappuccinos, chat about the latest project hurdle. A manager from America Online Inc. eavesdrops. Behind them, a salesman from start-up Biz2biz.com gabs on a cell phone cradled in the crook of his neck as he jots on a Palm organizer balanced on top of a large latte. A typical scene in Silicon Valley.

The U.S. destroyer Paul F. Foster heads out to sea, as the sun sets on an era. The Long Beach Naval Station and Long Beach Naval Hospital face closure, and the Navy's two housing tracts are nearly abandoned. If all goes as city leaders plan, a mega-mall will take the place of the naval station. A university research park, two schools, a housing project for the homeless and a job-training center will erase any signs of the housing tracts.

The research park's design allows it to run on on-site energy sources, such as fuel cells or microturbine generators.
