INGLEWOOD – Inglewood continues to be a paradise for developers looking to cash in on the hype of the renaissance of the city of Inglewood thanks to the sports entertainment district thrusting the City into the international spotlight.
Developers have submitted a proposal to build a 13 story mixed used development at the site currently known as the Tradewinds Adventurer Hotel formerly known as a backpackers paradise.
The site located at 4200 W. Century Blvd. has been plagued with issues of illicit activity ranging from drug sales, prostitution and murders which doesn’t jive with the future of the city considering its close proximity to SoFi Stadium and the Intuit Dome.
The owners of the property have entered into a long-term lease agreement with developers to create the mixed-use development which could have devastating impacts for the area. Occupants would literally be looking into the backyards of homeowners for at minimum of two miles from the proposed site.
The city council is expected to approve a “peer review” agreement with the developer paying the City close to $25,000 for said services on the Aug. 23 regular city council agenda.
The city appears to be methodically redeveloping areas that are synonymous with illicit activity. Is that a good thing?
On the same council agenda, the city is clearing out portions of 101st Street for Murphy’s Bowl LLC.4200-w-century-blvd
