The $300-Million mixed-use complex is expected to open in 2020.

After breaking ground a year and a half ago, the Expo Line-adjacent Ivy Station development is now several stories above ground in Culver City.

The $300-Million project is a joint venture between Lowe Enterprises, AECOM Capital and Rockwood Capital. The mixed-use complex sits on a five-acre lot directly next to the Culver City Station. Three mid-rise buildings will replace a park-and-ride lot with 200 apartments, a 148-room hotel, and 210,000 square feet of office space above 36,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space.

Ivy Station is being designed by KFA Architecture, Cuningham Group, EYRC Architects, and RELM Studio. Plans call for a mix of pedestrian walkways, a transit plaza, an underground garage with 1,500 spaces (including 300 for transit patrons), and one-acre of green space centered between the buildings.

The project is scheduled for completion by Q1 of 2020. It is one of several projects currently underway on Washington Boulevard, including the 8777 Washington Office Complex – reportedly being leased by Apple, and the 37-unit Lucky Apartments.
