Centennial is Los Angeles County’s opportunity to take advantage of population growth by providing diverse working-class and middle-income families an opportunity for home ownership. It is a mixed use development planning to build over 19,000 new homes with 10 million square feet of commercial space ultimately creating 23,000 permanent jobs, and over $39.1 million annually in County tax revenues that will benefit ALL of LA County.
You can also tweet your support for the Centennial project utilizing the suggested tweets below. Remember to retweet to @BizFed and end with #HousingSupplyMatters to emphasize that building more housing projects like Centennial is the most effective solution to our housing supply and affordability crisis.

- Centennial is consistent with both the LA County General Plan and the Antelope Valley Area Plan (AVAP). In 2015, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the Antelope Valley Area Plan and updated the LA County General Plan.
- The Ranch wide Agreement with environmental stakeholders such as Sierra Club and Audubon preserves 240,000 acres or 90% of Tejon Ranch as permanent open space, while allowing 10% of the Ranch to move forward with sustainable development.
- LA County continues to face a housing crisis and needs a variety of housing types throughout the County of Los Angeles. Centennial’s master planned community will be able to address this problem by provided price-attainable housing that will help accommodate both regional and economic growth in LA County.
- As a master planned community, Centennial will create more than 23,000 permanent jobs.
- Included in the project will be 10.1 million square feet of retail/public/business park/office space and civic and institutional development.
- Of the 19,333 new homes being developed, 15% will be set aside as affordable housing for a total of 2,900 units. This exceeds the 10% affordability used for other similar projects.
- Centennial has agreed to the largest local hire program by private developer in LA County, hiring 30% of local residents. The local hire program will target local residents, minority-owned, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises for the construction of buildings within Centennial.
