The Culver Steps at 9300 Culver Boulevard is a 115,000 sf project that is located in the heart of downtown Culver City adjacent to multiple historic and iconic structures.
The program includes ground-level retail, a four-story office building, and a Grand Stair that leads pedestrians up to a restaurant pavilion and landscaped Elevated Plaza perched above the existing Town Square.
The Grand Stair serves the dual purpose of drawing people to the Elevated Plaza as well as providing amphitheater seating for the Summer Series concerts, performances and outdoor screenings.
The project incorporates architectural elements that are instantly recognizable and build on the City's identity as a place of entertainment, history, and pedestrian-centered activity.
The busy corner of Culver and Washington Boulevards is the symbolic gateway to downtown Culver City and the dramatic corner announces it as such.
The project weaves into the urban fabric by sensitively scaling the building elements and relating to the surrounding brick and beige material palette. Retail shops are strategically located to energize the existing sidewalks and streets.
