The 99 Cents Only Store at the Triangle Center burned down in 2019, opening up a large lot on a busy street that has seen massive development in the last five years.
According to UrbanizeLA, PK Architecture is designing the Triangle Center development, which straddles the border between Culver City and Los Angeles. Plans call for a six-story building facing Washington Boulevard to the south and a smaller five-story building along Zanja Avenue to the north. An L-shaped footprint above the podium level would create space for a pool courtyard and amenity deck on the second floor.
Bastion Development Corp., which purchased the site at 12727 Washington Boulevard in 2018 for $17.5 million,, has proposed to clear the site to make way for a new mixed-use project consisting of 144 apartments above 19,100 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and two levels of subterranean parking. Plans call for 19 of the apartments to be reserved as deed-restricted affordable housing, with roughly 5,000 square feet of public open space proposed at street level.
“The sixth floor is pinched in to create relief in the overall massing along the street,” reads a design description included in a presentation to the Mar Vista Community Council. “The narrow ends of each mass terminate at Zanja Street with a triangular shaped amenity deck in-between…[reducing] its impact on a Zanja, being a neighborhood residential street.”
