A 20-acre spread in the South Bay city of Carson is slated for a massive mixed-use development.

Developer JPI wants to clear two neighboring sites to make way for 1,048 residential units, a 200-key hotel, and 15,000 square feet of retail space, according to Urbanize. The development is being called Jefferson on Avalon.

The larger of the two sites is a triangular lot on the corner of Avalon Boulevard and 213th Street bordering Interstate 405. The other property is west across Avalon Boulevard.

Texas-based JPI wants to build five-story apartment buildings and 40 three-story townhomes, as well as some standalone commercial space — a 12,000-square-foot “food pavilion” and a 2,500-square-foot drive-through coffee shop, according to documents published by Carson.

In August, JPI secured an $80 million construction loan for a 244-unit apartment complex in nearby South Gate. The firm has built a handful of apartment communities in Anaheim.

The project needs several discretionary approvals from Carson city officials. A timeline for the project hasn’t been released, but JPI says the complex would be built in phases, starting with the multifamily housing, according to Urbanize. The 40 townhomes, the hotel, and retail buildings are scheduled for the last phase.

Carson has another big project in the pipeline. Private equity firm Energy Capital Partners wants to build an 80-acre sports complex with 52 tennis courts, eight soccer fields, and other facilities. Golf superstar Tiger Woods’ organization TGR Foundation is signed on to lead an academic center planned on the campus. [Urbanize]Dennis Lynch
