At the intersection of Jefferson and Sepulveda Boulevards in Culver City, developers 3MR Capital and The John Buck Company are starting work on a mixed-use project that will replace a post office and a Coco's restaurant with housing and commercial uses.
The $210-million project, named for its address at 11111 Jefferson Boulevard, will rise from a wedge-shaped 3.4-acre site bounded by Sepulveda, Jefferson, and Machado Avenue. Plans approved last year by Culver City will permit the construction of a five-story building containing 230 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 55,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses, 11,450 square feet of second-floor office space, and parking for 653 vehicles.
3MR and The John Buck Company will set aside 19 of the apartments for rent by very low-income households as part of a condition of approval.
Culver City-based wHY Architecture is designing 11111 Jefferson, while AO serves as its architect of record. Illustrations of the building depict the completed product as a contemporary podium-type structure with a setback above its second floor that would create open space for residents.
Additionally, plans call for a new 13,000-square-foot courtyard at Sepulveda and Jefferson and a 30,000-square-foot public park fronting Machado Road, both of which would be privately owned but accessible to the public.
The developers have stuck true to a timeline presented to the Culver City Planning Commission, which estimated that 11111 Jefferson would be built over a roughly 26-month period starting in the second quarter of 2022 and concluding in the third quarter of 2024. Ongoing work is limited to the demolition of existing buildings, according to a letter posted to the project's website.
