STEVEN SHARP — Construction is underway for Asher Pointe, a new development of single-family detached homes in Gardena.

The project, which comes from Watt Communities, is rising on a long-vacant lot at the intersection of 168th Street and Normandie Avenue.  Plans call for 21 for-sale homes in a mix of two- and three-story structures.  Each will feature four- and five-bedroom layouts ranging between 2,257 and 2,664 square feet.

According to an official project website, sales prices begin in the high $600,000s.

Asher Pointe offers 21 single-family, detached homes with up to 5 bedrooms. The spacious open floor plans, ranging from approximately 2,257 to 2,665 square feet, make them inviting to friends and family. Centrally located in a gated community, a feeling of traditional values and a sense of neighborhood fills the space.

Schools are all close, and with the 110 and 405 freeways both less than ½ mile away the commute is shorter. For convenience, there are four large shopping centers and a great variety of nearby restaurants, parks and recreation.
