San Pedro, CA—On Wednesday morning, demolition will begin on the long-vacant San Pedro Courthouse to make way for a County-led effort to build a new mixed-use community including affordable apartments and expansive ground-floor retail space. Supervisor Janice Hahn and developer Genton Cockrum Partners will hold a short press conference immediately before demolition begins to discuss the project.
“This is a project that we have been looking forward to for a long time,” said Supervisor Hahn. “There has been a lot of work happening behind the scenes with Genton Cockrum Partners, but the demolition means the public is going to see the progress and that is exciting. This project is in the heart of our downtown, so it was important that we got this right. We are building apartments that people can afford, bringing more people to downtown, and building a space everyone can enjoy.”
Demolition is expected to take up to 50 days. Construction will begin this Fall. READ MORE
