TARGETED INDUSTRIES & DEVELOPMENTS

Gardena has a long history of being home to a very diverse business base. The close proximity to the freeways, ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and Los Angeles International Airport make Gardena a very attractive destination. Having been home to corporate companies such as South West Offset Printing, Z-Gallerie, UPS, Nissin Foods, AVCORP, The Boring Company, and Chemical Guys, the Economic Development Department is targeting new industries and developments to continue supporting a diverse business base.

ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

Gardena has a strong history of being an innovation and manufacturing center. As the aerospace and Japanese automotive companies landed throughout the South Bay they pursued having facilities in Gardena due to the close proximity it created to the ports, airport, and other businesses that supported their industries.

HOSPITALITY DEVELOPMENT

Gardena is at the heart of Los Angeles’s tourism boom. As the Los Angeles Rams make their glorious return to Los Angeles, Inglewood’s Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park complex is going to draw visitors from all over country, if not the world.

MASTER PLANNED RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITIES

When it comes to residential development in the Los Angeles area, Downtown Los Angeles has the spotlight, with skyscrapers and high-rise apartment complexes springing up from Bunker Hill to the Arts District. However, Gardena, deserves some attention as well. At the State of the City Address in March of 2019, Mayor Tasha Cerda discussed in detail some of the exciting residential community projects currently underway throughout the City of Gardena.
