The Picerne Group, a commercial and real estate developer based out of San Juan Capistrano, has proposed to purchase part of the long abandoned center on the corner of Artesia and Bloomfield and build a five level-four story plus mezzanine- residential development with 198 luxury for-rent units built to condominium standards along with a fully screened parking structure. The development will be named Via Piazzo.

The proposal also includes the construction of a leasing area, clubhouse, fitness area, interior courtyard, recreation and pool area, landscaping, and related improvements.
Torrey N. Contreras, Director of Community Development for the City said of the project, “We have a good working relationship with Picerne, it is going to be a first class project. As Cerritos residents know, that site has been shuttered for many years we think that providing housing options presents a good opportunity for the city.”
City officials told LCCN that Picerne is in position to acquire the land from the bank
and as soon as they complete the purchase the development can begin.
The complex will take the western end of the parcel across the parking lot from the current Sam Ash store. The Hollywood Video, Mattress Gallery and Border’s Books buildings will all be demolished to make way for the development.
The condominiums will be rented at first with an option for the Picerne group to sell individual units if they so choose.

I sure hope the planning department carefully considers this proposed residential development. The property as a commercial/retail space was always awkward to get in and out of with one driveway access. As was said before the change to residential housing (or as I see it, dense-pack housing) makes the whole traffic dynamics on Artesia Bl. and Bloomfield very problematic. With Walmart across the street, increasing their volume with a full grocery store, customer traffic and their truck supply deliveries going into the Artesia Blvd. driveway may create a major traffic bottleneck. And on the other side on Bloomfield Bl. with… Read more »

We don’t need any more housing, is this a bad joke?

I thought former Cerritos Mayor Grace Hu bought this shopping center. Once again, good ole Gracie is hiding in the bushes, counting her money and stealing another “silent partner” zoning deal.
Watch out Planning Commission/City Council, the squeeze is on & the eyes of the city are watching you.

I, for one, wouldn’t buy a condo right by a freeway. It will just sit there vacant.

Former Hollywood Video Compound, should be retro to fit the following, plus construction of an over head bridge to the Town Center. Apartments proposed, will only follow ruins to ; or end up being like the proposed Overlay Zoning in the mid 2005 era, which was killed. Lets face it, Cerritos does not have diversity in stores and restaurants, compared to two decades ago.

• Fry Electronics
• Ikea
• Cheesecake Factory
• Beni Hanna’s Restaurant
• Bloomingdales.
• Spaghetti Factory
• Lowes
• Sub satellite of Memorial Medical Centers.
• Bus depot sub station.
• Lawry’s Restaurant.
• RV Sales and Repair Center.
• Anderson Soup and Restaurant.
• Retail Discount Outlets stores.

Are we to understand the city has seriously taken into consideration the impact of up to 400 cars, all at once, attempting to get out of this confined area 5 days a week during early morning rush hour? Will the city need to add yet one or two more stop lights. Like this small city doesn’t have enough already. A nice idea, but the location’s impact on the community SUCKS!! An accident (multiple) waiting to happen, especially at a red light camera intersection. The obvious reason for the consideration is the city needs income. Can you spell city council expensive… Read more »

Sunday, May 26, 2013 Cerritos | 5 Story Apartments | 200 Units? | No no no, location will only create more blighted Projects like the Compton Landing Co delivered in to Norwalk. This strip zoning with no changes to the existing street grid, will only add congestion and the tenants will pour out onto Artesia Blvd and intersections. Another fusion of the following poor Housing Projects: • Del Amo Apartments- East Lakewood ( Fusion of Condo-Rentals) • Willow Brook- So Central • Ramona Gardens Projects- So Central • Norwalk Manor- • Vacant San Pedro Military Barack Projects & Public Housing… Read more »
