7-Story, 300-Unit Mixed-Use Development Coming to Compton
Earlier this week, the City of Compton released an environmental report for a proposed mixed-use development project located at 501 and 601 Compton Boulevard.
The applicant, KBK Enterprises, is proposing to construct a seven‐story, 266,792 square‐foot development comprised of 7,734 square feet of retail/commercial uses, up to 300 residential units (including 20 percent affordable units), a pedestrian plaza (Willow Plaza), the Compton Innovation Hub and Creative Studios, and two parking garages with up to 407 spaces.
The Compton Innovation Hub (Hub) and Creative Studios will provide learning labs, co‐working and product development labs, studios, and recreational space for artists, writers, musicians, designers, and technology developers. The Hub would be approximately 44,787 square feet, located on four floors on the southeast portion of the site.
The project site currently contains four one‐story structures that are vacant and will be demolished to make room for the proposed project.
Grading and construction of the proposed project is anticipated to begin in November 2022 with project completion estimated by January 2025.
GGLO Design is designing the mixed-use development.
