While the Cimmarustis had been actively involved as real estate developers for forty years, it had only been as auxiliary components of their business. They decided to focus on real estate development as a sole entity and they formed Lucia Development, LLC to focus on development projects. Lucia is the name of their grandmother who came from Italy. As the matriarch of the family, Lucia always believed in the American Dream and to honor her memory, they formed Lucia Development, LLC.
Currently, Lucia has shopping center projects in California, and Washington, as well as office projects in the city of Glendale and Los Angeles. As well as multi family developments, which includes 150 units in Los Angeles and 175 units near downtown Los Angeles with a retail component. With many of these projects, Lucia Development has partnered with the various cities and their redevelopment agencies.
