Mitch Gardner

President G3 Urban
  • I have been a residential homebuilder for 35 years. What most people don’t realize is that arguably the most important aspect of any new project is the working relationship required between the developer and the City staff the project is being built in. The City of Gardena views themselves as “partners” in creating what's best for the City. From the first conceptual meeting through the approval process they work hand in hand with the developer to insure the City gets the best possible project for their citizens. I find their approach inspirational and therefore do everything possible to help them achieve their dreams for their City. They’re proving that its absolutely possible to have a win-win situation.
