Editor’s note: Three large housing communities are planned for the Tejon Ranch in northwestern Los Angeles County and southern Kern County. The Centennial project is planned for up to 19,333 homes at Quail Lake (L.A. County); Tejon Mountain Village is approved for 3,450 homes at Lebec (Kern County); and Grapevine at Tejon Ranch is envisioned as a 12,000-home community (combination of single-family homes and multifamily units) in Kern County.
A public hearing is scheduled for June 6 in downtown Los Angeles for the proposed Centennial project at Tejon Ranch, a 19,333-home community to surround Quail Lake at the north end of the Santa Clarita Valley along Highway 138.
According to the L.A. County Department of Regional Planning, the project site includes approximately 12,323 acres (19.3 square miles) of land in the unincorporated county territory. It is approximately 50 miles south of the city of Bakersfield via State Route 99 and Interstate 5, and about 36 and 43 miles west of the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, respectively. It’s bordered by the L.A.-Kern County line on the north and Highway 138 on the south.
Centennial, roughly as large as the planned 21,500-home Newhall Ranch project in the southwestern Santa Clarita Valley, is actually one of three projects that will total nearly 35,000 homes near the L.A.-Kern County line. Centennial Project is slated for up to 19,333 homes on approximately 4,987 acres of land specifically designated for residential use in the draft environmental report, which was completed last year.
Additional land uses include 7,363,818 square feet of business park space with offices, research and development, and warehousing or light manufacturing on 597 acres. The developer, Tejon Ranch Cos., also proposes new schools, parks, up to four fire stations and a sheriff’s station.
Build-out is to occur in multiple phases over 20 years, based on future market conditions.
