A new two-story shopping center is in the works in the Crenshaw District. Would District Square, this 300,000-square-foot addition, enhance the area or deprive local businesses of customers? Whatever the case, the new project is set to have a Target, Ross, and Marshall’s. The site of the building will be located near the Crenshaw Expo Line Station, which will form the northern end of the future LAX/Crenshaw light rail line now underway. The project will also displace some small businesses, parking lots, and a Ralphs grocery store.
In a similar vein, Cumulus Media Inc. announced it will sell its longtime radio transmission facility on La Cienega Boulevard, which is just a short walk away from the Jefferson/La Cienega Expo Line Station. The transmitter is currently home to KABC, one of the oldest operating radio stations in the nation, and KLOS. TOD pundits believe that the property could fetch as much as $90 million for Cumulus, which expressed the option to keep the radio stations on the property as a tenant.
