Across the street from Metro's Culver City Station, co-developers LPC West and Clarion Partners are putting the final touches on an Apple-leased office building.


The project, located at the northeast corner of Washington and National Boulevards, consists of a four-story edifice containing approximately 125,000 square feet of offices above 4,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a subterranean parking garage.

The Gensler-designed building is built with concrete frame which curves at the intersection of Washington and National.  Floor-to-ceiling glass wraps each of the above-ground levels.

Apple, which has leased the building to serve as the headquarters of its content division, which was established to create films and television shows for the Apple TV Plus streaming service.  

Apple, which will reportedly employ more than 1,000 people in Culver City by 2022, is not limiting its footprint to the new building.  The Cupertino-based tech giant recently paid $162 million to purchase five adjoining properties fronting National and Venice Boulevards, potentially paving the way for their redevelopment with additional office space.

Besides Apple, several other technology and media companies are also moving into new Culver City offices.

Directly west across National Boulevard, WarnerMedia has leased the entirety of the 240,000-square-foot building now under construction as part of the Ivy Station development.

Farther west toward Downtown Culver City, Amazon has leased more than 600,000 square feet of office and production space between the historic Culver Studios campus and the neighboring Culver Steps development.

LPC West, the West Coast affiliate of Dallas-based real estate investment firm Lincoln Property Company, is also developing an 11-story, 280,000-square-foot office building at the southwest corner of Culver City.
