The New Gateway to Culver City

Located adjacent to the Culver City Metro E line station, the 500,000–square-foot, mixed-use Ivy Station provides a welcoming and active gateway to Culver City for residents, metro riders and visitors to the burgeoning area.  Ivy Station links two rapidly evolving, but previously distinct and separate areas of Culver City – the lively historic downtown with its studios, restaurants and nightlife, and the Culver City Arts District with its growing roster of creative and media companies like Warner Bros Discovery (based at Ivy Station), Apple, Sony and Amazon.

Ivy Station features The Shay, a 148-room boutique hotel;  Upper Ivy, a 200-unit contemporary apartment community; 47,000 square feet of specialty retailers & restaurants; a 240,000 square-foot office building leased to Warner Bros Discovery to house employees of the company’s West Coast offices of HBO, Cinemax, HBO Max and its WarnerMedia Entertainment networks TNT, tbs and truTV;  two acres of outdoor space open to the public; and 1,500 below-grade parking spaces, 300 of which are dedicated for use by Metro transit riders.

Ivy Station’s large landscaped outdoor area is programmed with a host of activities open to the public, such as games, fitness, movie nights, art shows, gift fairs and concerts.  A property-wide art collection includes 35 locally commissioned murals, textiles, installations and portraits, each accompanied by a unique QR code that invites visitors to learn more about the artist.

The campus is designed in a contemporary style with mid-rise buildings set on the property to provide multiple view corridors to visually connect with the surroundings.  With multiple points of access, the property encourages the community, Metro riders, Ivy Station residents and employees to walk or bike through this bustling area of Culver City.

Ivy Station is a LEED -ND certified property and earned the Gold award as the Commercial Project of the Year (Mixed-Use/Retail) from the Los Angeles Business Journal, a Design Award from Westside Urban Forum, an Award of Merit from the Pacific Coast Builder’s Conference, the TOBY award for Mixed Use and Pueblo Award for Community Impact from BOMA Greater Los Angeles, and was selected Mixed-Use Project of the Year from NAIOP Southern California.
