The Prairie Station development, slated for a property at 11227 S. Prairie Avenue, spans roughly five acres between the freeway trench and one of its off-ramps. Proposed plans call for the construction of a trio of podium-type apartment buildings, containing a combined total of 440 residential units accompanied by parking for 670 vehicles.
Many wonder if the name “Prairie Station” is an indicator that a proposed transit stop is in the works.
The developer of the apartment complex is listed as Hawthorne-based real estate firm K.I.G. Properties.
Prairie Station LLC and K.I.G. properties are owned by Hawthorne-based real estate developer William Hassan who has appeared numerous times on the campaign finance forms for Inglewood Mayor James T Butts Jr.
Prairie Station LLC will also be awarded 2.6 acres of surplus land the City is holding for this project.
