A $21M design for the much awaited Torrance Transit Center was announced this week according to the Daily Breeze. The will be constructed on over 16,000 square ft. former industrial land near Del Amo Blvd. and Crenshaw Blvd. Some plans are still ongoing. Those plans include a possible linking to the Torrance Transit Center with the Green Rail Line. Since much of the money going toward the Transit Center is being provided by the transportation taxes collected, there is a good chance to see the rail line extension eventually approved and built. A huge parking lot will be built and a retail building was originally planned but was slashed at the last minute.
Many local developers are interested in building a retail complex. Experts are looking for an environmental impact report on the possible retail complex by the end of the year. Metro Rail is working to solve any problems with bringing the Metro line to Torrance and hopes to announce something positive soon, or when funding for the line can be solved.
