A year-and-a-half after our last update, the wood framing is complete, but exterior finishes still remain to be seen at the small mixed-use project rising just east of Culver City Station at 3434 Wesley Street.

The project, which broke ground in February 2019, stands five stories in height, with three rows of wood framing standing above a concrete podium. At completion, the project is expected to include 15 apartments and approximately 14,000 square feet of office and commercial space. Plans also call for 69 parking stalls in a basement garage.

LOHA is designing 3434 Wesley, which will offer studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans - including one unit which will be set aside for rent as affordable housing. Approved plans call for an exterior of perforated and solid metal panels, with green spaces separating the rows of apartment blocks. The height of the structure gradually scales down toward Wesley Street.

City records list the project applicant as Pine, LLC, a Los Angeles-based entity managed by Hooshang Larian.

The project is a relatively modest addition to the neighborhood surrounding Culver City Station, which has seen the completion of Ivy Station, a mixed-use complex which includes a hotel, multifamily housing, and new offices for Warner Bros. Discovery, as well as a four-story office building leased by Apple.

Perhaps the neighborhood's most noteworthy addition yet remains on the horizon - Apple is planning a new office complex at the intersection of Venice and National Boulevards which would have more than 500,000 square feet of space.
