Aerial shots provided by photographer Hunter Kerhart show that construction is now complete at the Brickyard, the latest creative office campus in Playa Vista.

Located on ten acres of previously undeveloped land at 12099 and 12126 W. Waterfront Drive, the project consists of two buildings featuring approximately 430,000 square feet of commercial offices, in addition to amenities such as a daycare facility, retail space and a parking garage.  Both buildings were designed by architect Michael Maltzan, with direction from Gensler.

At 12099 Waterfront, the project offers a six-story structure that adheres to the contours of the L-shaped lot.

Across the street at 12126 Waterfront, a five-story building features a five-story building with multiple terrace levels, as well as a landscaped plaza which connects to the adjacent Playa Vista Central Park.

Completion is now scheduled for early 2017.
