In Culver City's Hayden Tract, work is complete on 3516 Schaefer Street, a new project which converted and expanded an aging industrial building as commercial offices, Del Amo Construction announced this month.

The project from Redcar Properties and architecture firm RAC Design Build, located just south of National Boulevard and a short walk from Culver City Station, features approximately 25,000 square feet of offices across three floors. The building includes 18-foot-high ceilings, as well as open floor plans, a break area, a mezzanine space, and outdoor decks.

Del Amo's work on the project involved the retrofit of an original crane-rail steel building on the property, which was modified and folded into the new construction. The finished building includes a sloping roofline, as well as an exterior of metal, glass, concrete, and wood.

The new offices represent a growing cluster of Redcar-owned properties in the Hayden Tract, including an adjacent office building located at 3520 Schaefer Street. The Santa Monica-based developer also has more plans for the neighborhood, recently going before the Culver City Planning Commission to present a proposed 35,000-square-foot office development for a neighboring site at 8570 National Boulevard.

The project's location on eastern edge of Culver City places it midway between two hubs of activity centered on Metro stops. To the west at Culver City Station, Warner Bros. Discovery and Apple have established large offices, while to the east at La Cienega/Jefferson Station, several similar large blocks office space are planned or under construction. Among the most visible projects is the new Eric Owen Moss-designed Wrapper tower.

Redcar, in addition to the Schaefer Street development, is planning or in construction on a number of office buildings across Los Angeles County, including projects Santa Monica and Chinatown.
