Document Description
Specific plan for a multiple-use development on the 140-acre former Rockwell/Boeing site in Downey. Proposed land use include a shopping center, offices, plus buildings designed to accommodate research and development activities. Together, the project's buildings will total a maximum of approximately 2.1 million square feet of floor area in three distinct land use areas. Area I encompasses slightly more than 33 acres and occupies the northern portion of the project site. A planned retail shopping center will occupy this area, and will be oriented toward Lakewood Boulevard. Other streets bordering Area I include Stewart & Gray Road and Bellflower Boulevard. The center will feature both inline stores and freestanding buildings. Together, the center's building will provide a maximum of 410,000 square feet, plus parking. Area II will total approximately 63 acres. It supports an existing building that contains 883,550 square feet, which both Rockwell and the Boeing Company used for aerospace manufacturing and testing purposes. The development proposal involves either reusing a portion of the building for motion picture studio or production.
