8-Story, 265-Unit Residential Project Planned in the City of Gardena
Last week, the City of Gardena released a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed 8-story, 265-unit residential project located at 12850-12900 Crenshaw Boulevard in the City’s northwest corner.
The Gardena Transit-Oriented Development Specific Plan Project, proposed by the Dinerstein Companies, would include 265 dwelling units and 267 parking spaces on a 1.33-acre project site. The site, which is bordered by the City of Hawthorne to the west and north, is currently occupied by a 24,900 square-foot (SF) auto parts warehouse and surface parking lot, which the new project would replace.
In addition to the multi-family housing, the project would make 10 percent of its dwelling units available at any given time for corporate lessees to sublease to tenants for 30-day periods or less. The residential unit mix would consist of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units.
The project would include a minimum of 8,500 SF of common open spaces including a dog park, swimming pool and upper-level courtyards, fitness areas, clubhouse and a co-working space.
The 267 parking spaces would be provided in 2.5 levels of parking above grade, and ½ level of below grade parking. The parking spaces would be leased out separately from the residential units to incentivize residents’ use of alternative transportation modes. Instead, each residential unit would come with a bicycle parking space, and additional bicycle parking spaces for guests.
Designed by Architects Orange, the project will feature a 60’ by 42’ digital display on the north side of the project facing El Segundo Boulevard for both advertising and information about community events. The City would receive a portion of the digital billboard’s revenue under the development agreement.
The Draft EIR’s public review period is open until March 1, 2021.
