JPI Brings the Only New Apartment Product in this Competitive Los Angeles County Market 

SOUTH GATE, California (July 18, 2019) – Since 1989, JPI has been a driver of innovation in Class A multifamily housing and a leader in the pursuit of new housing opportunities. Continuing this tradition, the company announced today that it has closed on financing for South Gate’s first new apartment community in 30 years. Jefferson on Imperial, a 244-home luxury development set in the heart of South Gate, will break ground this year and be available for first occupancy in spring 2021. 

Conveniently located near several major freeway systems such as the I-105, I710, and I-5, Jefferson on Imperial will provide easy access to all major job centers and destination hubs within Los Angeles County. The community is only 11 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, with over 500,000 jobs, and thousands of restaurants and entertainment venues. The development will be especially desirable for medical professionals, surrounded by four hospitals providing 8,765 jobs within a 2.1-mile radius. 

“We’re proud to be able to bring a major new element to the South Gate residential market,” said Rosie Cooper, Executive Vice President, Western Region Managing Partner at JPI. “I’m sure the community will be as thrilled as we are when Jefferson on Imperial opens its doors – it will no doubt be one of the most sought-after residences in the area.” 

The appearance and aesthetic of Jefferson on Imperial will be equally impressive and inviting. The overall interior is inspired by the nearby downtown Los Angeles arts district, and will feature unique and playful unit entryways with vertically oriented floor-to-ceiling unit numbers in vibrant colors specific to each floor. The concept will employ contemporary design in a suburban and mixed-use arena while fitting the surrounding architecture. Additionally, at four stories above grade with mezzanine units, north- and west-facing tenants will have a direct view of the downtown Los Angeles skyline. 

Residents at Jefferson on Imperial will enjoy a comprehensive suite of high-quality amenities: 

  • Resort style pool and spa with cabanas and poolside turf lounge area  
  • Outdoor lounge and seating area with flat screen TV, two-sided indoor/outdoor fireplace, and BBQ grill area with seating 
  • Large-format fitness center (3,100 SF) with adjacent outdoor landing made of large porcelain wood plank flooring for yoga, stretching, and exercise classes 
  • Clubhouse featuring multiple co-working spaces and a large glass jewel box conference room; ride-share waiting area; entertainment & lounge space with flat screen TV, pool table, 360 shuffleboard, foosball table 
  • Dog park with dog run and dog wash areas; Zen courtyard with seating area; play courtyard with ping pong and outdoor fireplace, and curvilinear courtyard with Adirondack chairs around a fire pit 

 Jefferson on Imperial will be constructed at Garfield Avenue and Imperial Highway. The site was purchased from Clearwater Communities in June 2018, after which JPI worked closely with the City of South Gate’s Planning Commission to approve the project.
