With financing now in hand, construction is set to begin for a new creative office building near the Expo Line's Culver City Station.  Quantum Capital Partners has announced a $38-million construction loan for the third phase of Platform, the Runyon Group's mixed-use campus between Downtown Culver City and the Hayden Tract.

The project, located at 8888 Washington Boulevard, will consist of a four-story building containing 66,000 square feet of offices atop 6,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and an automated parking garage in three basement levels.  It joins existing office and retail space at the Platform, which the Runyon Group completed in 2015.

As with the first two phases of the project, Abramson Teiger Architects is designing the low-rise office building.  The contemporary structure will feature an exterior of custom glass fiber reinforced panels, embedded with LED lighting strips.

Completion is anticipated in Summer 2019.

The project is the four major development to break ground in recent months between Downtown Culver City and the Expo Line.  Work is long underway at the landmark Ivy Station and Culver Steps developments, and another mixed-use office building recently began site preparation at 8777 Washington Boulevard.
