The Inglewood Planning Commission adopted a resolution to approve a mixed-use project at 939 Manchester and determined the project is exempt from further review under the California Environmental Quality Act.
Allied Urban is the developer seeking to build an eight-story mixed-use project on the site that currently houses a car wash and is adjacent to the LAX Firing Range at the intersection of Manchester Blvd. and Hindry Ave.
The plans call for 222 residential units, with 11 being “affordable”, and 3,500 square feet of retail ground space. The project is in-line with the Transit Oriented Development plans for the Westchester/Veterans area in the North end of the City in Councilman Eloy Morales’ district.
The residential units will be comprised of 76 studios, 107 one-bedrooms, and 39 two-bedrooms. The property will also feature a roof deck which explains the city council’s decision to increase height requirements to accommodate rooftop amenities.
The California Renters Legal Advocacy and Education Fund pledged its support of the project stating its a public benefit that will bring “increased tax revenue, new customers, and will reduce displacement” as the state faces an ongoing housing crisis.
This project also aligns with the newly opened Crenshaw/LAX (K-Line) that opened Oct. 7. The K-Line won’t reach LAX Airport until 2024.
The Inglewood Municipal Code (IMC) does not require the City notify the public for design review.

That there will be 222 new housing units anywhere in the city should be a topic brought before the public,for public awareness, for presentation, public discussion, public interest re impact – yes there always is- and just simple basic courtesy this is not a community run by one and his band of empty heads.
