Developers who are just now deciding to build multifamily in Southern California will find themselves entering a very competitive market. According to real estate research firm Reis, Inc., in just Los Angeles alone there are over 6,500 units in various stages of development, most due to complete this year and next, including CLG's $35-million apartment community located at 7928 Hollywood Blvd., which is due to be delivered in 2013. Similar activity is being seen in the comparatively smaller Orange County market, where over 2,200 units are in development, most due to complete this year. Ventura County may offer the best option for additional multifamily development. Only two multifamily projects totaling 350 units are currently under construction--both slated for completion next year. However, many more are planned for this boutique-sized multifamily market in the coming years. So those considering building here should get the process rolling soon.
