On the eastern perimeter of Playa Vista, a long-vacant property is finally being developed into a small office and retail complex.

Kor-Ten, as the project is known, is now rising on a wedge-shaped property at the corner of Centinela and Mesmer Avenues.  The four-story building will feature approximately 11,600 square feet of offices above 1,200 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space and a parking garage.  A terrace level and street-fronting patio will offer more than 1,500 square feet of outdoor space.

The project is being designed by local architecture firm Netarq, and constructed by the Sunshine Builders Group.

Historic aerial images show that the property has been undeveloped as far back as the early 1950s.
