Plans surfaced five years ago for Market Hall, a new, environmentally-friendly "compound for food artisans, restaurants, farmer's stalls, and more" at Washington and Centinela in Culver City--and then nothing happened. The Westside's 60,0000-square-foot answer to DTLA's Grand Central Market is not dead though; Culver City Times reports that the architect, developer, and the city's traffic engineer recently met for a design workshop on the market. Other than refining the design specifics, it sounds like the market is also caught in the miasma that the death of the state's redevelopment agencies left behind: "City staff is currently in the process of executing a six-month extension agreement to the project's Schedule of Performance with Regency Centers to allow additional time for the Successor Agency's Long Range Property Management Plan to be reviewed by the State Department of Finance" (meaning the state has to approve the plan from the group that took over redevelopment activity in Culver). At least there's no shortage of fancy cheese on that end of town.
