Summary:  We introduce some classes of $C^*$-algebras with ``good" local approximation properties --- the class of $\LB$ algebras and several subclasses of it --- which generalize, among others, the $\AH$ algebras, the $\AD$ algebras and the separable, simple $C^*$-algebras with an approximate unit of projections. We initiate the study of these new and rich classes of $C^*$-algebras, proving results about the ideal property, real rank zero, the projection property, ideal structure, inductive limits, stable isomorphism, hereditary $C^*$-subalgebras and extensions. Some of our previous results about $\AH$ algebras and $\GAH$ algebras are generalized.
