Primestor Announces Target As The Anchor Tenant At South LA’s ‘Evermont’ Redevelopment

Last week, Primestor Development announced that Target has signed on to be the anchor retail tenant for the once-in-a-generation mixed-use development project known as Evermont.

Located at the intersection of Vermont and Manchester Avenue, Evermont aims to transform two blighted South Los Angeles blocks that had been vacant for over 30 years. 

“We are proud to welcome Target to Evermont where they will provide permanent jobs and strategic partnerships to uplift local small businesses. Target is coming to the table ready to learn, innovate, and build with our local community partners to ensure that this location is helping to meet the neighborhood need for access to healthy foods along with job opportunities.” – Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair, Holly J. Mitchell, representing the Second District. 

Once completed, the 40,000-SF Target will be positioned alongside 180 units of affordable housing, a landscaped public transit plaza, a Metro training facility, and the state’s first public boarding school – SEED LA.

Arturo Sneider, CEO, Primestor – ” At the heart of this dynamic and proud community, with Target as its anchor, Evermont will provide essential services, stimulate the local economy by creating local jobs, facilitating workforce development, connecting public transportation and sponsoring year-round activities for its residents.” 

With the SEED school already under construction, the development team for Evermont’s second phase – BRIDGE HousingCoalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) and Primestor – bring a combined 85 years in local, community-centered development expertise to the project.

According to initial estimates, the Evermont project will deliver 120 new job and training opportunities for the local workforce during construction and an additional 155 full-time jobs when completed.

Construction for the multi-phased complex is expected to be completed in 2024.
