A tipster has passed along the official website for 8777 Washington Boulevard, a proposed mixed-use development which would replace the Surface Culinary District near the Expo Line's Culver City Station.

The project - slated for a one-acre site at the northeast corner of Washington and National Boulevards - would entail nearly 30,000 square feet of creative office space, 80 residential units and approximately 16,000 square feet of ground-level commercial uses.

Renderings portray a low-rise complex linked by a central core. The building would feature three floors on the western side of the property, housing the project's office component and nearly 8,500 square feet of street-level commercial space.  Five floors on the eastern side of the parcel would contain a mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and slightly over 6,700 square feet of retail space.

Plans call for a wide range of amenities within the apartment complex, including a communal courtyard and a rooftop sun deck featuring a pool, spa, shade area and exercise equipment.  Likewise, the office component would offer balconies and breezeways on each level.

Parking for residents, office users and commercial tenants the low-rise development would be provided in an on-site parking structure.  The garage, which would feature an at-grade level and three underground levels, could accommodate up to 345 vehicles - substantially more than what is required by code.

The project is being developed by Vitruvian Culver City, a limited liability company which purchased the Surfas property earlier this year for $16 million.  Both GlobeSt and Culver City Crossroads have reported that Surfas, which sells professional kitchenware, will operate a 13,200-square-foot store within the new development.

The Vitruvian development is the fourth mixed-use complex to emerge at the crossing of Washington and National Boulevards since the completion of the Expo Line's first segment in 2012.  Projects from both Greystar Real Estate and the Runyon Group are currently under construction on the opposite side of Washington Boulevard.  West across National, Los Angeles-based Lowe Enterprises has unveiled plans for a 500,000-square-foot development on Culver City Station's park-and-ride lot.
