The large park-and-ride lot at the Culver City Metro station is not long for this world. Urbanize LA reports the parking lot will close February 6 so construction can begin on a five-story office building, a six-story hotel, and a six-story apartment building with 200 units.
The very transit-friendly, mixed user is called Ivy Station, and it received much acclaim from the Culver City Planning Commission in June. Each of the new buildings will offer ground floor space for shops and restaurants.
Eventually, plenty of parking will return to the site—more than 1,500 spaces in total. Additionally, the completed project will bring a bike hub with over 200 bike spaces, two acres of open space, and free TAP cards for many of the office tenants.
