The City of Torrance has published an initial study detailing the Butcher-Solana Residential Project, a multi-building development that would bring new rental housing stock to the South Bay.

The project, which comes from ReyLenn Properties, LLC, encompasses a nearly 25-acre site at the northern foot of the Palos Verdes Hills.  Plans call for the construction of a trio of five-story buildings, creating 248 dwelling units on approximatley 5.7 acres of land at the corner of Hawthorne Boulevard and Via Valmonte.  The remaining 19 acres of the property, a former diatomaceous earth mine, would be preserved as open space.

ReyLenn Properties proposes a mixture of one and two-bedroom units, with floor plans ranging between 705 and 1,200 square feet.  Other features of the project would include perimeter landscaping, a community room, a gym, and dedicated parking structure capped with an amenity deck.

Withee Malcolm Architects is designing the contemporary buildings, which would be clad primarily with smooth stucco.

Construction of the Butcher-Solana development is expected to occur in a single phase, starting in January 2019 and finishing after approximately 29 months in June 2021.
