City to Hold Community Meeting on Development @ Washington & Centinela – July 18

 Culver City has seen explosive growth and development over the last ten years, but there are still spaces where the plans to build have been put on hold. The proposed developments on the north side of the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue have started and stopped as often as a game of musical chairs. But the music is on again, and the city is offering the required community meetings to showcase the latest updates on proposals. On  July 18, 2024 from 6:30 – 8 pm at Culver West Alexander Park at 4162 Wade Ave.

The community is invited to receive a project update and presentation from Regency Centers regarding proposed modifications to the approved commercial development located on the northeast and northwest corners of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue. All members of the public are welcome to attend the community meeting.

The project was approved in 2018, and construction began in 2019 for a 26,000 square foot artisanal marketplace that included a market hall concept, various food retail and restaurant suites and public parking situated on two sites at the northwest and northeast corners of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue.

Construction was halted in March 2020 due to the pandemic. Since that time, the City and Developer have been actively working to move the project forward relative to current market conditions.

The developer is requesting to proceed with a modified project that reduces the overall project square footage by approximately 13,300 square feet and removes the market hall component.

The project would be occupied primarily by food retail and restaurant uses. Outdoor dining and plazas of approximately 9,600 square feet would connect to the public sidewalks and promote pedestrian activity and accessibility to the marketplace.

The design will still incorporate materials previously contemplated to give the project a simple, rustic aesthetic, appropriate for its location and complimentary to the adjacent residential neighborhood.

On-site parking would also be provided via a two story, 122 stall City-owned parking garage that would support the project as well as the surrounding commercial neighborhood.

If you have any questions or would like additional information regarding the community meeting, please contact Economic Development Director, Elaine Warner at [email protected] or at (310) 253-5777.
