With nearly two years of construction already behind them, California Landmark Group is putting the finishing touches on 3838, a $25-million apartment complex near Downtown Culver City.

Located at 3838 Dunn Drive in Palms, the seven-story building will feature 79 market rate apartments and seven units of affordable housing when completed next year.  Other features within the building will include a fitness center, ac ommunity room and a rooftop deck.

Rios Clementi Hale Studios and PK Architecture designed the project, which features a grey stucco exterior accented with bands of white and yellow.  A green wall will wrap the ground level, masking at-grade parking from view.

Though surrounding by parking when initially proposed, 3838 finds itself opening with neighbors.  The Harlow Culver City apartments are already open next door, and a smaller multifamily project is now under construction across the street.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
