In Culver City, local real estate investment firm Tova Capital, Inc. is wrapping up work on The Braddock, a project which converted the former home Allied Model Trains into office space. The building, located at the northwest corner of Sepulveda Boulevard and Braddock Drive, features the 12,600 square feet of offices in its interior, as well as a new outdoor amenity space on its rear property line.

ODAA is designing the project, which retain the Mission Revival and Art Deco architecture taken from Union Station. However, the former retail store's interior has undergone a full remodel, while new windows have been installed on the exterior.

Allied Model Trains, founded in 1946 in West Los Angeles, called the Union Station replica home from the early 1990s until 2007, when the store downsized into a smaller location located just north. Seven years later, Allied Model Trains closed for good.

While the building was subsequently leased as a camera store, Tova Capital acquired the property in 2019 for $8.2 million, and later embarked on the office conversion.
