Just three months after purchasing a development site near SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne for $18.2 million, Houston-based developer Dinerstein Cos. has begun clearing the site for the construction of a new apartment complex.

The 2.53-acre property, located on Crenshaw Boulevard between Jack Northrop Avenue and El Segundo Boulevard, the project will consist of interconnected six-story buildings featuring 230 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments atop 3,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a parking garage.

Steinberg Hart is designing the project, which will also incorporate numerous courtyards opening to the street, and other on-site amenities such as fitness centers, a swimming pool, and outdoor decks.

The Dinerstein project is set to rise a short distance south of the Green Line's Crenshaw Station, and just east of the repurposed warehouse where Amazon subsidiary Ring has announced plans to establish its new headquarters.

Construction of the Dinerstein project is expected to begin in earnest by November.
