A string of small commercial buildings in Culver City have bitten the dust, and a mixed-use development featuring assisted living for seniors is slated to rise in their place.


The roughly .88-acre project site, located at 11141 Washington Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story building containing 134 residential units - including 154 assisted living and memory care beds - above 2,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space and an 84-car garage.

Seattle-based Runberg Architecture Group is designing the proposed project, which is depicted as a contemporary low-rise structure clad in brick, aluminum, stucco, and fiber cement panels.  Plans call for on-site open spaces including two courtyards - one of which would site at ground level along Washington Boulevard.

The project, a joint venture between SRM Development Westmont Living, is scheduled to be built over a roughly 18-month period.

According to a community presentation given earlier this year, rents for the assisted living apartments are expected to range from $4,500 per month for a studio unit to $6,000 per month for a two-bedroom unit.

Washington-based SRM is also behind plans a similar senior housing development in the Encino.
