The project, designed by glocal architecture firm Gensler, is replacing a former surface parking lot adjacent to the studio's Overland Avenue entrance. According to a document distributed by the Culver City Planning Commission, the mid-rise tower will include approximately 220,000 square feet of office space, support functions and a ground-floor cafe.
According to architectural plans, a half-acre park site immediately east of the building may be converted into a park for studio employees and visitors at a later date.
The building will reportedly house Sony's Home Entertainment Division, which is relocating from an office tower located east of the studio lot.
The tower's design was modeled after the Cohn Buildings, a pair of contemporary office buildings built near the Sony Pictures' Culver Boulevard entrance.
