The New Gateway to Culver City
Lowe has begun construction of the highly-anticipated Ivy Station, an approximately 500,000-square-foot mixed-use project adjacent to the Culver City Station of the Metro Expo light-rail line connecting downtown Los Angeles to the beach. The development will feature 200 apartments, 55,000 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space, a 148-room boutique hotel, known as The Shay, and a 200,000-square-foot office building, all built above 1,500 spaces of below-grade parking and including more than 2 acres of space that is open to the public. Lowe worked diligently to create an engaging project that will appeal to multiple users, from transit riders and residents to office workers, hotel guests and the surrounding community. The centerpiece is a large landscaped park that winds through the property providing pedestrian connectivity and areas for programs, recreation and relaxation. Ivy Station’s prominent location provides a gateway to Culver City that will link two historic areas of the City; the energetic revitalized downtown and the growing creative Arts District.
