ReyLenn Properties is inching closer to its proposed 248-unit apartment complex in Torrance, following the release of its initial study last week.

City officials announced it would be holding a public review next week before the Solano Beach-based developer prepares its Environmental Impact Review.

Located on the corner of Hawthorne Boulevard and Via Valmonte, the nearly 25-acre site will have one- and two-bedroom apartments in three, five-story buildings, Urbanize reported. Floor plans will range between 705 and 1,200 square feet.

The contemporary-style buildings designed by Withee Malcolm Architects will have amenities such as a gym, community room and 484-stall parking structure, according to Urbanize.

ReyLenn also plans to set aside 19 acres of the property, which sits on a former mine, as open space.

The stability of the site overlooking Zamperini Field has been seen as an issue but Derek Empey, ReyLenn’s senior vice president of development, said a number of studies have shown it poses no potential issues.

“The results are coming back very favorable,” he told the Daily Breeze. “It is not a stability issue and the development proposals can be supported by the engineering. We don’t plan on cutting into the mountain side, we are staying away from the cliff.”

If the project is approved, construction is expected to start in 2019 and be completed by 2021. [Urbanize] — Subrina Hudson
