In anticipation of tomorrow's groundbreaking, machines have already arrived at Washington and National, the site of the first Expo Line-oriented project in Culver City. Access Culver City, formerly Legado Crossing, is a 115-unit mixed-user with 31,000 square feet of commercial space. An earlier rendering, showing the back of the development, made it look a little less thrilling than it may be, so here's the latest look, showing ACC's face, which includes a 7,000-square-foot plaza that hopes to lure not only residents, but commuters heading to the train. Speaking of which, the developer, Greystar Real Estate Partners, says they plan to encourage transit use, but are keeping tight-lipped on how, as well as on how much parking their project includes (we hear it's quite a bit): "There is adequate parking to serve the retail, which is an important component of this development," Perry Pound, Managing Director of Development for Greystar, says. "We are also offering incentives to encourage Expo Line use."
