One of my favorite areas in North Redondo Beach is known as the TRW tract. It’s named this as it’s nearby the form TRW building that graces the skyline of the South Bay (it actually is the skyline) nearby Manhattan and Redondo Beach. The building is now Northrup Grumman but the name given to the neighborhood long ago remains the same in local real estate circles. Many engineers from TRW originally lived in the neighborhood which is the reason for the name.
What makes this specific part of Redondo Beach unique is a combination of large lot sizes and zoning that generally only allows for single family homes. This zoning, along with numerous streets with only one way in, gives the area a very family friendly community feel with parks and schools within walking distance (as well as work for some Northrup employees). In addition most homes are still “reasonable” sizes for the lots with minimum “mansionization” that’s overwhelmed some nearby areas. The TRW tract has still retained it’s 1940’s type coastal charm.
