A stretch of small commercial buildings on Washington Boulevard could make way for an assisted living facility, according to the agenda of this week's meeting of the Culver City Planning Commission.

The proposed development, slated for a .88-acre site at 11141 Washington Boulevard, calls for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 134 residential units, amounting to 154 assisted living and memory care beds.  The project would also include 2,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space and an 84-car subterranean parking garage.

Runberg Architecture Group is designing the contemporary low-rise structure, which would be clad in a combination of brick, aluminum, stucco, and fiber cement panels.  The building would have an S-shaped footprint, allowing for two amenity courtyards - one of which would open onto Washington Boulevard.

Washington-based SRM Development is behind the proposed project, and is partnering with Westmont Living, according to a presentation given at a community meeting earlier this year.

The developer anticipates that the project will cater to residents averaging 83 years in age and be staffed by 20 to 25 employees throughout the day.

Rents are expected to range from as low as $4,500 per month for a studio unit to as much as $6,000 per month for a two-bedroom unit.  That figure would include the cost of meals.

Construction is expected to occur over approximately 18 months, pending approvals.

SRM is developing a similar senior housing project in the Encino community.
