Five months after Culver City Station's park-and-ride lot was shut down for construction, developer Lowe Enterprises is finally beginning site preparation the Ivy Station mixed-use complex.

The project, which is being developed in partnership with AECOM Capital, will create a series of interconnected buildings featuring 200 residential units, a 148-key hotel, 210,000 square feet of offices and 36,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants.

The design team of Cuningham Group, Relm Studio, EYRC Architects and KFA has composed a plan which orients itself to the adjacent train station through a pedestrian paseos, a transit plaza and a central green space.

Completion is anticipated in 2019.
