Hackman Capital Partners has taken another step forward with the Culver Steps development at 9300 Washington Boulevard, with the installation of a tower crane at the project site.

The project, which officially began construction in November 2017, will consist of a four-story building containing 75,000 square feet of office space, 40,000 square feet of retail and a 35,000-square-foot public plaza.

EYRC Architects is designing the Culver Steps, with landscape and open space work by SWA Group.  The project is named for an iconic staircase that melds the building into the surrounding plaza.

Completion of the Culver Steps is expected in 2019.

Hackman is also planning a 400,000-square-foot expansion of the adjacent Culver Studios campus, which will eventually become the new home of Amazon Studios and several other subsidiaries of the Seattle-based tech giant.  The Real Deal reported last month that Amazon has also leased the office component of the Culver Steps.
