A new multi-family residential complex is rising on a 3.3-acre site located south of the Green Line's Aviation/LAX Station.

The project, known as Avaire South Bay, is being developed in the unincorporated community of Del Aire by real estate firm Fairfield Residential.  According to a post to the company's website, the low-rise building will feature 264 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as mezzanine loft units.  Plans also call for a swimming pool, social lounge and a parking garage within the development.

A rendering displayed on the perimeter of the construction site portrays Avaire as a modern, six-story structure.

Completion of the project is scheduled for late 2016.

The property - which is bounded by Aviation Boulevard, Judah Avenue, 117th and 116th Streets - was previously home to the Wild Goose, a local landmark which was billed as "the best topless dance club in the Los Angeles area."

Aviation/LAX Station, located one mile east of its namesake, is the southern starting point for work on Metro's new Crenshaw/LAX Line.  Construction activity for the $2.1-billion light rail line, which is slated for completion in 2019, currently includes new aerial structures above Century Boulevard and the 405 freeway.
