Urbanspace, a curator and developer of public markets, will soon ply its trade in Culver City.
According to Urbanize.LA, Regency Centers, the developer of the Culver Public Market development at Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue, has announced that Urbanspace will be partnering on its project, which is billed as a Westside answer to Downtown’s Grand Central Market.
“We take great pride in helping to bring a unique and quality operator like Urbanspace to a new market,” said John Nahas, Vice President of Investments for Regency Centers. “The market hall component is the anchor of the development, so we couldn’t be more excited to have Urbanspace as a part of the project. The company’s roots are authentic and their markets in New York and throughout the U.K. are among the best we’ve seen.”
Urbanspace, which was founded in 1972, is known for connecting small business owners and chefs to customers through its centers. The company’s previous work includes more than 50 projects.
“Over the past 40 years, with every environment we’ve built – permanent and pop-up – Urbanspace has taken the most important cues from our creative pool of chefs and makers,” said Eldon Scott, President of Urbanspace. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with some of the most talented chefs in Los Angeles and providing them with the ultimate stage to do what they do best –– serve delicious food, beverages, and theater with this great, new destination in Culver City.”
The Culver Public Market, totaling approximately 26,000 square feet of rentable space, will rise from two long-vacant lots. Construction is scheduled to begin in Fall 2018, with completion and opening anticipated early in 2020.
