A California Story

NextGenUrban:   Born into a California heritage dating back to 1905 and a family tradition in the construction and steel fabricating business that began with the famous Llewellyn Iron Works in downtown Los Angeles. A name reminiscent of the early years of building the great city of Los Angeles, the Llewellyn steel company was at the epicentre of building Southern California's most historically significant structures. Iconic buildings like L.A. City Hall (1928), The Avalon Casino on Catalina Island (1929),  Union Station (1939), Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, and many other famous commercial projects throughout the state. Subsequent generations expanded the real estate operations into Orange County (1950’s) with joint ventures and partnerships with other early California developers who executed projects that defined the industry's most innovative and popular projects. The tradition continues today with international development of master planned communities at the leading edge of new technology and real estate development.
