Inglewood real estate was once the Rancho Aguaje de la Centinela, bought by Sir Robert Burnett of Scotland, and later sold to Canadian Daniel Freeman, who built a vast empire shipping millions of barley bushels from his wharf at Playa del Rey. Even after its incorporation in 1908, Inglewood remained a largely agricultural area until World War II when industrial activity drew new workers to the city.
Beginning in the 1960s, the city acquired more urban characteristics. Forty-seven percent of its residents are African-American and 46 percent are Latino. Inglewood is an attractive location for air freight and other businesses. Highrise office buildings include the 14-story, $50 million Trizec building on La Cienega near Century Boulevard.
