Inglewood, California - On January 29, 2024,
JPI, a renowned developer of high-quality multifamily communities, held an inaugural ceremony to mark the beginning of construction on Jefferson Inglewood, a new residential project set to bring 222 homes to Inglewood, California. The event was attended by Mayor James Butts of Inglewood, representatives from Senator Steven Bradford and Assembly Member Tina McKinnor's offices, and several project partners.
This transit-oriented community, consisting of eight stories, will offer a combination of market-rate and affordable housing units in studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom configurations. Following the City of Inglewood's Transit Oriented Development (TOD) plan and design guidelines, the development will incorporate unique features that enhance the streetscape and provide residents with convenient access to multiple nearby transit options. Each home will be equipped with premium amenities, including stainless steel appliances and full-sized, in-unit washers and dryers. In addition to the unit amenities, Jefferson Inglewood will provide various outdoor spaces to foster a thriving community, such as a large pool with a cabana, a beautiful clubroom, a well-equipped fitness center, a rooftop deck, and more.
Sunti Kumjim, Senior Vice President and Regional Development Partner for JPI, expressed enthusiasm for the project, stating, "Inglewood is an incredible community with a rich history and promising future. We are excited to contribute to Inglewood's growth by providing much-needed housing that will support the ongoing development of this vibrant community." The Jefferson Inglewood project is just one among many exciting developments taking place in the city. Over the past 1.5 years, City Staff, the Architecture and Engineering Team, and Capital Partners have collaborated to obtain entitlements and permits, culminating in the realization of this premier residential community for the residents of Inglewood.
Situated just three metro stops away from El Segundo, renowned as the aerospace and defense capital of the world, the new Jefferson Inglewood community offers convenient access to various opportunities. Additionally, the city of Los Angeles is currently working on The Automated People Mover (APM), the largest public works project in the city's history. This venture involves the construction of an electric train system on a 2.25-mile elevated guideway, encompassing a total of six stations - three within the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and three outside it. With recent federal funding of $1B secured, the project is anticipated to commence in 2024.
