While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

Westchester County remained on PropertyShark’s top 100 most expensive U.S zip codes list. See which zip code was ranked.

This fall, real estate industry blog PropertyShark released its annual research on the top 100 most expensive U.S zip codes in 2022, which broke last year’s zip records.

Unsurprisingly, one Westchester County town made the list. Can you guess which locale is among the country’s most expensive zip codes?

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s Realty (@juliabfeesir)

Drum roll please…Rye! This is the town’s fifth year being ranked, although it might not stay on the list for much longer.

Overall, the list breaks down which states have the most expensive zip codes. California sits comfortably at the top with the Bay Area as the most expensive metropolitan area in the country with 46 zip codes. Los Angeles next on the list with 31 of the top zips, and then New York with 17 in total. To put it in perspective, New York represents 13% of the richest zip codes for real estate in the country.

Rye has kept its spot on the list since 2017; however, its ranking has been slowly decreasing as the area bumped down to #89 this year. Only time will tell if Rye is able to keep its spot on the 2023 ranking report.

Although Rye has one of the most expensive zips in the state, let’s take a look at one of the least expensive homes for sale in Westchester’s priciest town. This North Street property is priced at $715,000, considerably lower than the local median of $1.8 million, proving there are relative steals to be had if you know where to look and are willing to put in some elbow grease.

The PropertyShark report states that as a result of mortgage rates rising throughout the country, the housing market saw sales drop and price growth decrease. It also saw an increase of median home prices by 25% or more in 16 of the top zip codes.

LOS ANGELES — Orange Lutheran’s girls basketball team added another chapter to its impressive postseason Tuesday night.

Call it “The L.A. Comeback.”

The CIF-SS Division 1 champion Lancers rallied to defeat L.A. City Section Open Division champion Westchester 62-59 in a Division I first-round game of the CIF Southern California Regional that delivered a thrilling, back-and-forth final quarter.

The visiting Lancers (25-7) came back from an 11-point deficit in the middle of the third quarter and received a go-ahead 3-pointer from Shea Joko with 35 seconds left to advance to the second round. The victory came one season after Orange Lutheran lost in the first round of the Division II regional to Brentwood.

“We didn’t want our season to end,” said junior post Taliyah McFerson, who scored 13 of her team-high 20 points in the second half. “We want to keep going. We’re not ready to be done.”

Orange Lutheran, seeded ninth, will play host to No. 16 Chaminade, one of its foes in Division 1, in the second round Thursday. Chaminade knocked off top-seeded Ontario Christian 88-65 in the first round of the regional playoffs.

The Lancers defeated Chaminade 78-68 in the Division 1 semifinals.

“They got their rematch,” Orange Lutheran interim coach Alex Helmage said of Chaminade. “Now it’s state playoffs. (Our) girls love each other so much, they don’t want the season to end and it showed in the second half.”

The Lancers trailed 42-31 in the middle of the third period before closing on a 10-5 run to trim the lead to 47-41.

Orange Lutheran took its first lead since early in the opening period at 52-51 on a running baseline floater by Princess Cassell with 3:39 left in the fourth quarter.

But the big shots were only just starting.

Westchester’s Ron’yae Jackson, a Cal State L.A. commit, responded with a 3-pointer to give the Comets (29-2) a 54-52 lead.

Joko countered with her own 3-pointer with 2:23 left, giving Orange Lutheran a 55-54 advantage.

Westchester regained the lead again on the next possession on a jumper by point guard Rylei Waugh, whose sister Reigne added a free throw to make it 57-55 with 1:19 remaining.

But McFerson scored inside to knot the score at 57-57 with 1:05 left, and following a basket by No. 8 seed Westchester, Joko drained her fourth 3-pointer to make it 60-59 with 35 seconds left.

The junior guard sank two foul shots with 16.9 seconds left, capping her 12-point fourth quarter, and then reached behind a dribbler for a late steal, burning time the Comets desperately needed.

“I didn’t want our season to end at all because we have a really good sisterhood,” Joko said. “We have two great seniors (Madi Bogan and Heaven Johnson) and we want to spend as much time (together) as we can.”

Cassell scored five of her 13 points in the fourth period, including a key 3-pointer early in the frame after a block by Bogan.

Jackson and Rylei Waugh finished with 22 and 16 points, respectively, for the Comets, who claimed their first Open title in the L.A. City.

“They just hit big buckets,” Westchester coach Dominic Grimes said of the Lancers. “(Our) defense fell apart, especially at the 3-point line. You can’t let a team just dribble down the floor and pull up uncontested. That kind of hurt us down the stretch.”

In Division II

San Juan Hills 60, Mater Dei Catholic 49: Anna Shreeve had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Sydney Peterson added 12 points and 15 rebounds to lead the host Stallions to their first regional victory. No. 6 San Juan Hills plays at No. 3 La Salle on Thursday in the second round.

In Division III

El Dorado 60, Palisades 37: Senior Avery Shiring recorded 25 points and 15 rebounds to leads the visiting No. 7 Golden Hawks, who advance play at No. 2 Redondo on Thursday.

A local developer aims to build a mixed-use, 441-unit apartment complex in Westchester.

Cityview, a multifamily developer based in Century City, filed plans to construct the five-story complex at 6136 West Manchester Avenue, north of LAX, Urbanize Los Angeles reported. It would replace buildings containing a Pep Boys tire shop and a Del Taco restaurant.

Plans call for building on a triangular property at Manchester and South La Tijera Boulevard, backed by Truxton Avenue, just east of Sepulveda Boulevard.

The building would include 441 apartments above 16,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants, with parking for 551 vehicles. It would include a fitness center, a club room and outdoor courtyards.

In exchange for density bonus incentives that permit a taller building with more floor area than allowed by zoning rules, the developer would set aside 66 of the apartments for households earning very low incomes.

The contemporary-style complex, designed by AC Martin, would be layered in white, brown, black and gray, and would step down to four and five stories facing La Tijera. Setbacks on upper floors would create various rooftop decks.

An outdoor plaza would flank the shops and restaurants at Truxton and La Tijera, which serves as a gateway to the neighboring Westchester Town Center. It also leads into 87th Street, which serves as a weekly farmer’s market each Sunday.

The project aims to inject life into the Town Center, which lines Sepulveda Boulevard with offices and shops, but has little in the way of apartments, Adam Perry, senior vice president for Cityview, told Urbanize.

The approval process is expected to take a year, with construction taking up to 36 months.

At nearby Sepulveda and Manchester. Los Angeles-based Caladan Investments is building a mixed-use apartment building with 87 units.

Cityview, now building mixed-use projects in South Los Angeles, Historic Filipinotown and Carthay, ramped up work during the pandemic, Perry said. The firm now has 3,500 residential units in the pipeline across the West Coast and Colorado, plus a new industrial operation with 1 million square feet of property in Arizona.

Controversy over safe parking program for homeless at Westchester Park

WESTCHESTER, Calif. — Westchester Park has a special place in 67-year-old Chip Mallek’s heart.“I played baseball over here, in the younger days when I could move around,” he said.It was during those baseball games that his future wife noticed him, and a few years later, he was coaching t-ball for his kids on the same field.“I would have to tell them in which direction to run,” he said with a smile as he remembers those days.The field has been recently remodeled and is scheduled ...

WESTCHESTER, Calif. — Westchester Park has a special place in 67-year-old Chip Mallek’s heart.

“I played baseball over here, in the younger days when I could move around,” he said.

It was during those baseball games that his future wife noticed him, and a few years later, he was coaching t-ball for his kids on the same field.

“I would have to tell them in which direction to run,” he said with a smile as he remembers those days.

The field has been recently remodeled and is scheduled to open at the beginning of October, but Mallek is worried few people will get to use it because of what he said are safety issues because of homeless people living in the park.

“My kids could ride their bikes down here and enjoy and have a wonderful time. Now, I wouldn’t send them down there without true adult and multiple adult supervision,” he said.

Mallek is not the only one feeling unsafe and protesting about it. Linda Murata, 73, used to visit the park’s senior center for exercise classes four days a week but not anymore.

“I don’t want to walk by,” she said. “I feel cheated because I live two blocks away.”

Related Stories

During the recent heat wave, she sat at home with no air conditioning, too scared to go to the senior center for cooling.

“I feel abandoned, neglected,” said Murata.

Some residents allege more serious complaints, including a homeless person exposing himself to children, harassing girls at the tennis courts and drug use on park grounds.

Someone else that feels unsafe there is Oscar Barr, a homeless Angeleno who has been sleeping in the designated overnight safe parking area.

“It’s not safe,” he said and told Spectrum News he would move for the kids’ safety, but his storage unit is nearby, and this is the spot the city has designated for overnight safe parking, at least until the opening of the baseball fields.

Mallek, who has volunteered with the homeless community for the last eight years, said he sympathizes for them and said they have proposed many other safe parking sites to city leaders.

On Friday, Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Commissioners announced it would not move forward with a 24/7 Safe Parking Program at Westchester Park.

It will let the current overnight Safe Parking program sunset on Oct. 2 before the opening of the baseball fields.

The announcement comes after significant pushback from residents and community members over using parking lots at the park for homeless housing.
