After six months of digging, developer Lowe Enterprises is now going vertical at the Expo Line-adjacent Ivy Station development in Culver City, with the addition of two tower cranes to the project site.

The mixed-use development - a joint venture with AECOM Capital and Rockwood Capital - will consist of multiple five- and six-story buildings featuring 200 apartments, a 148-room hotel, 210,000 square feet of offices, and 36,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

A design team of Cuningham Group, EYRC Architects, RELM Studio and Killefer Flammang Architects has oriented Ivy Station around its adjacent rail stop, with a mix of pedestrian walkways, open space, and a transit plaza.

Completion is anticipated in 2019.
