Carson Planning Commission: Union South Bay Apartments Approval - 05/26/2015


The approval of the 357 Unit Apartment Complex at the corner of Carson and Avalon by the Carson Planning Commission.


The developer sought development of the project as a "market rate" project. Seeking no public money for construction, they had the option not to include any low-income units in the project. Nonetheless, Planning Commissioner Thomas pressed the builder on this issue. Their response was a flat, No.

Carson Planning Commission consisted of: Diaz (Chair), Andrews, Faletogo, Gordon, Madrigal, Mitoma, Post, Schaefer, and Thomas. The vote was 9-0 in favor.

The units at Union South Bay current rent for ~ $2,000 per unit for a 522 square foot studio as the low end; to ~ $3,000 per unit for a 1194 square foot two-bedroom. The project also has up to 32,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Tenants for the commercial space have not been announced.
