Los Angeles-based homebuilder KB Home is pursuing a new subdivision in San Pedro.

The project, submitted to the City of Los Angeles for review on August 11, is part of the Ponte Vista master planned district at 26900 S. Western Avenue.  KB Home's project, slated for the northwest corner of the master plan area, would consist of 79 single-family residences.

Elevation plans drafted by KB Home's in-house architects call for an array of three-story buildings designed in the "Early California" and "Mediterranean" architectural styles.  Each would include three bedrooms and a two-car garage.

The Ponte Vista specific plan, which was approved by the City of Los Angeles in 2014, permits the phased redevelopment of an abandoned military base with nearly 700 homes.  Other developers with projects within the specific plan area include D.R. Horton.

KB Home is developing several projects in the South Bay, including new townhomes in Harbor City and Gardena.
