Four months ago, developer CityView cleared away a series of commercial buildings at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Inglewood Avenue.  The Los Angeles-based firm has now commenced with construction for a residential-retail complex in their place.

The mixed-use project, known as Pennylane, will consist of a five-story edifice containing 97 studio and one-bedroom apartments, in addition to 15,000 square feet of ground-level retail space and underground parking for 200 vehicles.  Plans also call for four units of affordable housing.

PK Architecture is designing the low-rise complex, which spans across an approximately 1.2-acre site located in both Culver City and Los Angeles.  Renderings show a contemporary design, with residential units wrapping around a central courtyard.

The project follows the Oliver apartments, a smaller mixed-use development located across Washington Boulevard.
