Supervisors to consider transit oriented development

On November 8th, the Board of Supervisors will be asked to consider the first mixed use, transit oriented development along the Green Line Statation at Aviation Boulevard, in the unincorporated community of Del Aire. This project consists of 390 residential units and approximately 29,500 square feet of commercial/retail space that would benefit surrounding residents and transit users.

This type of transit oriented development helps build livable, walkable and sustainable communities. By siting housing near the light rail station, individuals and families can reduce their household expenses, specifically on transportation-related costs. Given the location, this development will also provide a quality housing option for the large workforce located in Hawthorne, El Segundo and around the Los Angeles International Airport. The Aviation Station development can serve as a model for achieving Los Angeles County’s and the State of California’s vehicle emission reduction targets in order to mitigate the effects of global warming.
