West Coast Development Site Licensed for 300-Unit Senior Housing Community

Attention, senior housing investors and developers: Public Private Ventures has a West Coast redevelopment opportunity to ground lease and convert an old school into a 300-unit senior living community, and a bidder’s conference for the project is being held this Friday, Dec. 14.

On behalf of the El Segundo Unified School District (ESUSD), Public Private Ventures has issued a request for proposals to repurpose a 5.32 acre site in El Segundo, Calif. for senior housing. The site is located at 540 E. Imperial Avenue in El Segundo. 

Built in 1956, the former Imperial Avenue Elementary School campus closed in 1975 due to declining enrollment. It was declared Surplus Property by ESUSD in 1979, and in 1984 was used as an employee training facility for the Hughes Aircraft Company. The building was used for various other purposes in subsequent years, until the ESUSD Board of Education established a Surplus Property Committee in 2007 to determine what should be done wtih the site.

In 2009, the District began the process to entitle the site for development—including the option of a senior housing community. The site is fully entitled for 150 units of senior apartments and 150 units of assisted living. There is a 15% set aside requirement for low-, very low-, and extremely low-income qualified senior households.

The site can be developed with a senior housing community and a multi-family residential (R-3) component.  

Objectives of the ESUSD include preserving ownership to the El Segundo School site, providing “much needed” senior housing, and achieving LEED certification.
