Construction is underway for a mixed-use development featuring townhomes and live/work lofts in Gardena.

The project, called Gardena Place, is rising from a roughly two-acre site at 14321 Van Ness Avenue.  Plans call for a total of 40 residential units - including 35 townhomes and five live/work units - ranging between 1,009 and 1,979 square feet in size.

Renderings portray a contemporary design for the project, which will employ solar power in each of its homes.

Completion is anticipated later this year.  Sales prices are expected to start in the mid-$500,000s.

The project is being developed by an entity called G3 Urban.
