Elias “Lucky” Baldwin, the 19th century real estate developer for whom Baldwin Hills is named, has another nod to his legacy; Lucky Residences, a mixed-use apartment building in Culver City, just completed this past week. The development consists of a five-story building featuring 37 apartments above 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a parking garage.
Located at 12803 Washington Boulevard, the project includes a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans. Rents for the market rate apartments start at more than $4,000 per month. Only three units are designated as “low income/affordable.”
According to Urbanize LA, the contemporary low-rise building was designed by Pleskow Architects.
The Lucky is named for Elias “Lucky” Baldwin, an entrepreneur and real estate developer whose 19th century holdings included the modern day communities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Sierra Madre, and Baldwin Hills.
A motel owned by Baldwin once stood at the current site of the apartment building.
