Almost 40 years after a redevelopment effort cleaned up Old Torrance, demolishing dilapidated structures and building dozens of condominiums and apartments, city officials are seeking a strategy to revitalize the historic downtown. The City Council Tuesday, Dec. 11, will discuss hiring a consultant to come up with a plan to attract more people downtown. Conventional wisdom among neighborhood residents and merchants is that parking needs to be improved – Old Torrance does not have a parking structure – and more condominiums and apartments would bring a larger residential population and more energy to the area. Kirk Rossberg, a member of the local chamber of commerce’s executive board and owner of the 34-year-old Torrance Bakery, a popular fixture in the area, said the time is right to make a renewed effort to improve the neighborhood. “Thank God we have a parking problem,” he said. “That means people are here. “If they have somebody who can put some focus on things I’m all for it,” Rossberg added. “We have the makings of a really cool downtown with some new restaurants and the bakery. There’s a lot of energy down here.” The city has explored building a parking structure downtown for years without success. Negotiations to build one on the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot next to Keegan’s Sports Lounge and Grill on Marcelina Avenue did not come to fruition. [cq comment=” But there are recent rumors the city may be looking at the parking lot behind the Bank of America on Sartori Avenue, downtown’s main drag, as the site for a parking structure. The bank parking lot is adjacent to a municipal one so the site is certainly large enough. A City Council member Friday confirmed he had heard similar rumors, but didn’t know whether any negotiations were occurring. “] [cq comment=” Allan MacKenzie, an investor, landlord and developer who has had real estate interests downtown for decades, said the location was a good one for a parking structure. “The challenge down there is to get more people down there and the challenge is to get more parking,” he said. “There’s got to be a perception that it’s convenient. “If you look at any other South Bay equivalent area such as Hermosa Beach, they all have large parking structures or large parking lots that serve the businesses there,” he added. “Torrance needs the same thing.” “] Don Lee, a Farmers Insurance agent who has an office in a mixed-use building on Cabrillo Avenue, said a larger residential population would help bring a critical mass of people invested in the area who would create more energy. Since Lee moved in four years ago to the ground floor unit of an affordable apartment building, his business has remained the sole occupant of the commercial spaces; however, a gym has just leased 3,000-square-feet next door, he said. “Downtown Torrance could use more residential above commercial,” Lee said. “By adding people who could live down there within the corridor, you create vitality. “It becomes the destination for the people who live down there and that creates the vibe and as that increases the rest of the community notices and people will come down there even more,” he added. Old Torrance has some inherent disadvantages, however. Because it is offset from the rest of the South Bay’s north-south, east-west street orientation, it’s easy for motorists to miss as they speed by on Torrance Boulevard or Carson Street, Lee observed. In addition, although there are plenty of busy restaurants, there are few eye-catching storefronts to prompt pedestrians to linger. A new batch of restaurants including Restoration Kitchen, the Local Kitchen and Mexican eatery Madre bring throngs of people downtown, adding to already established businesses like Tortilla Cantina, Depot Restaurant and La Capilla. But those are destinations that people drive to, eat and then leave because there is little else to keep them in Old Torrance. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Again, the answer is simply more customers, MacKenzie said. “If you have more people living there and more people who can access it with better parking you get better businesses down there,” he said. To do all that, a feasible plan is required, Lee, MacKenzie and Rossberg agreed. “It could organize a lot of different opinions into one coherent vision for downtown Torrance,” Lee said. “It needs to decide what it is. And then once everyone decides what they want downtown Torrance to be, all new potential businesses, developers that want to go downtown, will have a clear picture of what the city wants.” The City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 3031 Torrance Blvd.
