Redondo Beach is comprised of North Redondo Beach 90278 and South Redondo Beach 90277. While both are Redondo Beach home prices are different enough to merit separate treatment of each zip code.
The primary difference is that South Redondo Beach has ocean view homes and direct beach access while North Redondo does not.
North Redondo Beach is landlocked as it is bound on its western borders by Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach the other two Beach Cities. There are a limited number of homes with mountain and city views.
The dividing line between North and South Redondo Beach is 190th St with North Redondo being north of 190th and South on the other side. PCH refers to Pacific Coast Highway which is not a highway at all although it is a very busy road. Many businesses are located on PCH in South Redondo.
South Redondo Beach has a very desirable town center known as Riviera Village. Homes within walking distance to Riviera Village may sell at a premium to similar properties in other parts of town.
North Redondo really doesn't have a similar center of focus although there is a business district on Artesia Blvd as well as Aviation. The South Bay Galleria Mall is located at the eastern border of North Redondo Beach adjacent to Lawndale and Torrance. The Galleria recently lost their anchor tenant, Nordstroms and it is rumored the property will undergo massive changes as a result that could enhance property values. Similarly the Redondo Beach waterfront in South Redondo will see revitalization over the next few years.
What North and South Redondo definitely share are the cooling ocean breezes.
