An Orange County developer has won approval to build 60 townhomes in Compton.

City Ventures, based in Irvine, got the go-ahead from the city to build the townhome-style condos at 930 West Compton Boulevard, Urbanize Los Angeles reported.

Plans call for the redevelopment of a long-vacant, 2.5-acre property to be replaced with three- and four-bedroom homes, private streets, sidewalks and parking areas.

Conditions of approval require 10 of the homes be reserved for sale to moderate-income households, with the remaining 50 units priced at market rates.

Project entitlements include a general plan amendment and a conditional use permit.
