Welcome to Torrance

A vibrant urban city full of beachy charm and luxury homes
Nestled in the stunning South Bay is a city full of authenticity and beachy charm. A warm breeze off the ocean keeps the city cool and fresh. Despite feeling somewhat tucked away from the bustle of Los Angeles, Torrance is easily accessible and packed with restaurants and luxury shopping, plus there’s always an exciting event on the calendar. 
Part of the Los Angeles Metro area, Torrance was developed beginning in 1912 with visions of it becoming a modern industrial city. The eastern border of the city was made into commercial and industrial zones and the western part closer to the ocean was transformed from an open plain into stunning residential areas.
Much of Torrance has a beachy feel to it, with the notable exception of Old Torrance. While still distinctly Californian, the historic district of Old Torrance is full of unique charm and character. There are more compact homes and luxury apartments in the heart of Torrance, and architectural variety from sleek modern homes to charming old-world styles fill the more suburban neighborhoods.
