As noted in comments last night, proposed office building Entrada, famously called a "giant, melting ice cube" by opponents was cleared by the Culver City Council last night, according to the Daily Breeze. Set to rise at Centinela and Sepulveda in Culver City, the Entrada tower was originally supposed to be a 13-story structure with nine levels of parking, but developer Centinela Development Partners agreed to shave off a level of the structure, according to the Daily Breeze. "By shaving off a level, the company also cut down the square footage slightly, to about 327,000. The complex will sit near the Promenade at Howard Hughes Center and Westfield Fox Hills Mall, in plain sight of people living atop the Westchester Bluffs." As previously noted, group Westchester Parents believe the project is "ugly" and think local retailers will be impacted by the increased traffic caused by the building.
