1600 Artesia Square, a for-sale residential community in Gardena, introduced a distinctive collection of lifestyle, environmental and technological amenities that speak to the desires of contemporary buyers. 1500 Artesia Square expands the opportunity for residents seeking an urban lifestyle in a desirable South Bay location.

Both developments feature contemporary architecture with vertical modulation, exaggerated glazing patterns and a strong color palette that evokes an urban vibe. In a city better known for its traditional tract developments, the design introduces a clean, modern aesthetic. In addition to the live/work functionality of the loft homes, all of the residences have been designed to offer an abundance of natural light and the architecture is Feng Shui sensitive.

Amenities include four neighborhood gardens, including a Tai Chi garden, a dog park, outdoor fireplaces, and BBQ areas with seating. In addition the entire community features solar panels with a 20-year pre-paid lease on every unit. Other sustainable features include energy efficient plumbing and appliances, dual glazed windows with low-E, energy saving glass and drought tolerant landscaping and high efficiency irrigation.

The properties are located in the Artesia Corridor Specific Plan a 44-acre revitalization area in the City of Gardena, which envisions a unique mixed-use environment with a combination of commercial, high-density residential and live/work uses oriented around a centralized main street.
