A draft environmental impact report published by Culver City offers a look at new renderings of a proposed mixed-use apartment complex in Fox Hills.

The project from Lincoln Property Company and Highmark Advisors, planned to replace an office building at 5700 Hannum Avenue, calls for the construction of a six-story building featuring 309 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above approximately 5,600 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for 428 vehicles.

The proposed development would rely on density bonus incentives to permit more housing and greater height than allowed by Culver City's zoning rules. In exchange, 27 of the new apartments are to be set aside for rent as very low-income affordable housing.

KFA Architecture is designing the building, which is in the environmental study as having a contemporary style, with a curved facade along Buckingham Parkway and an exterior of textured corrugated and flat panels. Plans show open spaces including a central courtyard, a gym, common rooms, and a rooftop deck. Plans also call for a new plaza fronting Hannum Avenue, which would be accessible to the public.

The environmental study maintains a previously announced schedule for the project, with groundbreaking occurring as early as the first quarter of 2025 and completion in late 2027.

Lincoln Property Company has been one of the most active developers in Culver City in the past decade, having previously built a new office complex near the E Line which is now leased by Apple, as well as the Entrada complex on next to the 405 Freeway. The developer is also planning to build more offices on a surface parking lot along Watseka Street in Downtown Culver City.

This is not the first large housing development planned for the Fox Hills area in recent years. An even larger project featuring more than 700 apartments was previously slated to replace a shopping center at 6201 Bristol Parkway, although the application for the development was later withdrawn. However, that site recently sold to developer Reda Residential, which is looking to revive plans for housing.
