The project, an expansion of CLG's existing 3838 apartments, is adding a new seven-story, 42-unit building on a previously vacant site at 3812 S. Dunn Drive. The new construction will be connected to the existing 86-unit apartment complex, resulting in a total of 128 dwellings.
Architectural plans approved by the City of Los Angeles in 2019 depict a contemporary podium-type building, mirroring the look of the older building to the south. As with its neighbor, new parking will be provided on a basement level.
CLG acquired the Dunn Drive site in 2018 from Napa Industries, for $7 million, taking on the property after plans a 19-story, 17-story apartment tower on the property failed to come to fruition.
The project is not the only expansion CLG has undertaken in Palms. A short walk west, the developer is adding 112 apartments and ground-floor retail to an existing property near Sony Pictures Studios. The company is also putting the finishing touches on a third project on Venice Boulevard.
CLG joins a handful of developers planning new housing in the blocks of Palms which flank Downtown Culver City, including a mixed-use project from Guo Rui Group now rising at Washington Boulevard and Motor Avenue and a 207-unit complex from Mapleton Properties at Washington and Clarington Avenue.
