Los Angeles-based developer KB Home is building a new community of townhouse-style condominums in Gardena.

The project, dubbed Newfield, is rising from an approximately 4.75-acre site near the corner of Rosecrans and Normandie Avenues.  Plans call for a collection of three-story residences with floor plans ranging between 1,784 square feet and 1914 square feet.  Individual units will each feature three-to-four bedrooms and a two-car garage.

The property was previously home to a nursery.
