Comstock to Build 850-Unit, Mixed-Use Community in Commerce

The Commerce, CA City Council has approved Modelo, a mixed-use project consisting of 850 residences, recreational and entertainment retail spaces, a park, community center and museum. The 17-acre property is located at the intersection of Gage and Slauson Avenues.

The name Modelo is in reference to the Commerce motto of “the Model City.” Adrian Comstock, the principle and founder of Comstock Realty Partners said in a news release, “After 25 years of experience in Commerce and eight years working with the city to create this unique development, we are excited to bring much needed housing and amenities to Southeast LA.” Comstock also said the project will honor and reflect the Latin American and Indigenous cultures and history of the site.

The 850 units will offer studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, along with more luxurious condos and townhomes. Plans for the retail space include numerous restaurants, a cinema, arcade and entertainment as well as essential services. The project is scheduled to break ground at the end of 2022.
