Down on the far western end of Culver Boulevard, developer Cove Spring Partners is in the midst of construction on an office development known as “The Strand Offices at Playa Del Rey.“ The project creates 10,000 square feet of creative office space, divided between two three-story buildings with architecture from the MIKA Design Group. The Strand will include large windows and outdoor decks to provide sweeping views of the Ballona Wetlands and Marina Del Rey.
Here’s an interesting small development, per the LA City Planning Department: 138 Culver Blvd.; Westchester-Playa Del Rey A mixed-use project containing 72 residential units, including 8 very low income units, above 15,000 sq. ft. of commercial space not to exceed more than 5,000 sq. ft. of restaurant uses. An off menu Density Bonus incentive to allow a height increase of 11 ft. above the permitted 45-ft. height limitation in height district Sounds like they’re shooting for 4-5 floors.
Silicon Beach’s creative office boom has officially hit Playa Del Rey. When we last checked in on the Strand Offices in September 2013, the low-rise development’s wood skeleton was still taking form. Ten months later, the twin three-story structures are clad in plaster and wood paneling, closely resembling architectural renderings from the MiKA Design Group. The $6 million development from Cove Spring Partners consists of 10,000 square feet of office space and parking accommodations for 32 vehicles.
