Grab the Opportunity for a Carefree Lifestyle in Del Rey

An empty lot in Del Rey will soon be the home of a five-story mixed use project that includes 47 residential apartment homes, along with ground floor retail shops. While all of the details have yet to be revealed, according to the Department of City Planning’s website, it appears that the apartment units will feature generously sized glass walls, allowing for a light, bright feel, as well as balconies for the residents to enjoy. In addition, the apartment dwellers will have off-street parking, as there will be plenty of room for both vehicles and bicycles.

The initial plan appears to call for a u-shaped structure, where the upper levels of the building will surround a courtyard below. And, although it is yet to be seen which tenants will occupy the lower level retail establishments, it is likely that cafes and / or coffee shops will be included here.

The development is located at 11612 West Culver Boulevard (at the corner of Culver and Dawes), an area that has most recently been utilized as a nursery and a Christmas tree lot. With approval for the project now secured, and some of the preliminary work permits recently pulled, the area is now fenced-in, with construction slated to begin shortly.
