The property sits in Council District 9 (CD 9) on the southwest corner of Slauson and Central Avenues in the Goodyear Industrial Tract in South Central Los Angeles, CA. Regency Centers, acting as developer, entered into a development agreement with CRA/LA. The estimated development cost was roughly $19 million, with the CRA/LA contributing approximately $8.7 million ($7.6 million in BEDI/Section 108 loan and up to $1.1 million in future tax increment).
The CRA/LA’s redevelopment goal on this property was to “help expand businesses and create new ones, generate jobs, stabilize and expand the industrial area, repair and clean up public infrastructures and attract new consumer retail, shopping and entertainment outlets.” The development provided a crucial boost for a blighted industrial strip and surrounding area.
Simultaneous with pursuing entitlements, Urban One, Regency Centers, and CRA/LA also performed soil vapor extraction and remediation work at the site. The design phase commenced in the second quarter of 2012 and construction commenced in the first quarter of 2013.
