Developers Forest City and QIC have revised and scaled back plans for a mixed-use complex surrounding the South Bay Galleria, following feedback from neighbors in Redondo Beach.
The revised development plan caps the number of residential units at 300 - all located along the Hawthorne Boulevard side of the property. Additionally, building heights will be reduced along Kingsdale Avenue. The original proposal had called for a maximum of 434 apartments, including an eight-story building along Kingsdale.
With the number of apartments cut back, Forest City and QIC are now planning office space within the project, as well as a new new neighborhood park that would feature children's play areas and programmable open space.
Other elements of the proposed development - such as a 150-key hotel and new parking accommdations - are unchanged. The existing mall - anchored by Macys, Kohl's and an AMC multiplex - will also remain intact.
Construction of the project is expected to occur over more than 40 months, starting in 2020 and finishing in 2023.
