Culver City has experienced explosive growth and development over the past decade, but there are still areas where construction plans have been put on hold. The proposed developments on the north side of the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue have been started and stopped as many times as a game of musical chairs. But the music is back, and the city is offering the required community meetings to present the latest updates on the proposals. On July 18, 2024 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Culver West Alexander Park, 4162 Wade Ave.

The community is invited to learn about the project and receive a presentation from Regency Centers on proposed changes to the approved commercial development at the northeast and northwest corners of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue. All citizens are welcome to attend the community meeting.

The project was approved in 2018, and construction began in 2019 on a 25,000-square-foot artisan marketplace that included a market hall concept, various food retail and restaurant suites, and public parking at two locations on the northwest and northeast corners of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue.

Due to the pandemic, construction work was halted in March 2020. Since then, the city and project developers have been actively working to advance the project in line with current market conditions.

The developer is requesting the implementation of a modified project that would reduce the total floor area of ​​the project by approximately 13,300 square feet and remove the market hall component.

The project would be primarily used by grocery stores and restaurants. Outdoor dining and plazas of approximately 9,600 square meters would be connected to the public sidewalks and encourage pedestrian activity and access to the marketplace.

The design will continue to incorporate previously considered materials to give the project a simple, rustic aesthetic that is appropriate to the site and complementary to the adjacent residential neighborhood.

On-site parking could also be provided in the form of a two-story, 122-space municipal parking garage that would support both the project and the surrounding business district.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the Town Meeting, please contact Economic Development Director Elaine Warner at (email protected) or call (310) 253-5777.
