With technology and media companies snatching up nearby office space as fast as it can be built, LPC West and Clarion Partners are planning another Culver City development.
The L.A. Business Journal reports that the companies hope to break ground as early as next year on a new project at 3817-3855 Watseka Avenue, replacing a surface parking lot and two small office buildings. The proposed project would consist of a four-story edifice featuring 150,000 square feet of offices above a three-level, 546-car subterranean parking garage.
News of the Watseka Avenue development came on the heels of Apple’s announcement that it plans to build a 550,000-square-foot office campus across the street from Culver City Station. The tech giant already leases a 128,000-square-foot building developed by LPC West and Clarion on Washington Boulevard.
Gensler is designing the proposed glass-clad building, which is depicted in a rendering with a roofline of sawtooth windows and multiple balconies and amenity decks for tenants. Plans call for high ceilings and mass timber elements, reports the Business Journal.
Completion is expected in 2024, at which time the developers hope to lease the property to a single tenant.
