Culver Steps Breaks Ground

On November 8, 2017, Project Developer Hackman Capital Partners joined past and present Culver City elected officials to break ground on The Culver Steps, a 1.16 acre mixed-use development planned for the parcel adjacent to The Culver Studios and The Culver Hotel in Downtown Culver City.

The four-story development will consist of approximately 75,000 square feet of cutting-edge creative office space, 40,000 square feet of vibrant retail and restaurant space, and a 35,000 square foot public plaza destined to become the new central gathering space in Downtown Culver City.

“When complete, The Culver Steps will be the crowning achievement of our downtown,” said Culver City Mayor Jeff Cooper. “With the recent announcement of Amazon Studios’ relocation to the adjacent Culver Studios, coupled with the energy that already exists in the area with nearby movie theaters, the Kirk Douglas Theater, restaurants, and The Culver Hotel, this project, with its expansive open space, is certain to function as the heart of downtown Culver City and create a welcoming environment for all to enjoy.”

The project was designed by the award-winning local firm Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects and is being developed by Hackman Capital Partners. Construction is projected to take 18 months to complete, with the opening of the Culver Steps projected to occur in 2019.

  1. Thanks Judith, I loved the video to get a better sense of what it will look like.
    Why were there only men performing the ground breaking?
