Hawthorne is prime for gentrification. 10 minutes away from the beach, like 5 minutes from LAX, easy access to the Green Line, adjacent to Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, and Inglewood, and bounded by the 405 and the 105. The fact that SpaceX has a big facility here, employing many tech workers, is a big plus.
I moved to Hawthorne a year ago and saw this coming!!!
