A state agency Wednesday approved Gardena's proposal to annex the Rosecrans Corridor, a 198-acre strip of unincorporated county land that juts into the city from Crenshaw Boulevard to just east of Western Avenue. The city must now hold a public hearing on the plan to determine public support among the estimated 1,700 residents of the area. If less than a quarter of the area's residents protest, the annexation will proceed without an election.

The string of shopping centers, squat office buildings and parking lots along Rosecrans Avenue seems typical of the South Bay's suburban landscape. But a barely mile-long strip that straddles the El Segundo-Manhattan Beach border has emerged as one of the area's hot new commercial districts, where tenants pay top dollar for scarce vacant space.

The house across the street from Gaylord Taylor caught fire last Christmas and burned before firefighters could put out the blaze. Taylor says the house might have been saved if his neighborhood, an unincorporated county area that juts into the city of Gardena, were served by Gardena fire stations rather than the county stations, which are farther away.

The Gardena City Council on Tuesday voted to annex the Rosecrans Corridor, a strip of county land that runs through the middle of the city. The decision, which becomes official Monday, was strongly opposed by some corridor residents, who told the council that they wanted to stay with the county. There was no opposition last month, however, when annexation was approved by the Local Agency Formation Commission.

Gardena has applied to the county Local Agency Formation Commission to annex 198 acres of unincorporated county land on Gardena's western border. Residents of the Rosecrans Corridor have complained to the Gardena City Council about confusion among some city and county agencies about who has jurisdiction in the unincorporated area for police and fire emergencies and street-sweeping.

Gardena is cracking down on its adult-oriented entertainment businesses with a new law that requires clubs to get background checks for performers and install better lighting in parking lots to deter crime. The new law, which goes into effect May 23, also requires new adult-oriented businesses to be located at least 1,000 feet from schools, parks, playgrounds, churches, bars and other adult-oriented businesses and 500 feet from homes.

Sometimes U. K. Wabi and his neighbors aren't quite sure where they live--in the city of Gardena, in unincorporated Los Angeles County, or in some never-never land between the two. It all depends on which officials you talk to, says Wabi. When there's trouble where Wabi lives--on West 144th Street near Western Avenue--like everyone else he calls 911. But emergency officials often are unsure whether to send Gardena police or county sheriff's deputies who patrol the unincorporated area, he says.

One of the Bay Area's most active real estate investment and development companies has purchased the twin Manhattan Towers office complex along the South Bay's popular Rosecrans Corridor for about $55 million. As the lively bidding for the fully leased property suggests, many commercial real estate companies are bullish on prospects for raising rents and values in the increasingly technology-oriented area of El Segundo and Manhattan Beach.

As "new-economy" tenants grab vacant commercial space in El Segundo and push rents and property values ever upward, real estate investors are scrambling to get in on the action. They are converting older office and industrial buildings for high-tech use, developing new specialized complexes and buying occupied office buildings.
