Across the street from Metro's Culver City Station, a small commercial building and a surface parking lot have made way for a mixed-use project which will serve as the new headquarters of a local engineering and construction firm.

Icon West, Inc., now based out of an office building in Westlake, has recently started site preparation for a new project at 3727 S. Robertson Boulevard in Culver City. The new project, which went before the Culver City Planning Commission in late 2020, will consist of a five-story building featuring 12 two-bedroom apartments, a 5,000-square-foot office for Icon West on the second floor, and 1,700 square feet of commercial uses at the ground level. Parking for 23 vehicles would be located at-grade and in a subterranean garage.

At the time the project went through the entitlement process, Icon West had intended to set aside three of the new apartments for rent at below market rates.

BOLADarck is designing the 3727 Robertson, which is depicted in a conceptual rendering on the Icon West website as a contemporary low-rise structure. Previously, exterior finishes were to include painted stucco and brick. Plans call for an L-shaped atrium on the upper levels of the building, as well as an amenity deck overlooking Robertson Boulevard.

While the new five-story building may dwarf its immediate neighbors, the project is one of the smaller new developments to rise from the blocks surrounding Culver City Station since its opening more than a decade ago.

The Metro hub's park-and-ride lot has yielded a $350-million complex known as Ivy Station, which includes apartments, a hotel, retail, and offices now leased by Warner Bros. Discovery. Another giant of the tech and media worlds, Apple, is poised to break ground later this year on a more than 500,000-square-foot office campus a block east at the intersection of Venice and National Boulevards.
