According to UrbanizeLA.com, demolition is now beginning on a vacant stretch of commercial buildings at 11924-11960 W. Washington Boulevard, the first visible signs of progress on a new mixed-use development in Culver City.
The project, which sits directly on the Los Angeles-Culver City border, would consist of a five-story building featuring 97 studio and one-bedroom apartments above 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and approximately 200 underground parking spaces. In exchange for density bonus incentives from the City of Los Angeles, plans call for four units of affordable housing.
Reporter Steven Sharp noted that PK Architecture is designing the podium-type building, which is portrayed in the contemporary style. The apartments wrap a podium-level courtyard, which supplements other communal spaces such as a roof deck and a social room.
The project site is now owned by Los Angeles-based real estate firm CityView, which purchased the land from Bastion Development Group.
