Local developer Karney Properties has unveiled plans to transform a 1960s warehouse in Playa Vista into creative offices, via a presentation last month to the Del Rey Neighborhood Council.

The property, located at 5405 Jandy Place, is currently improved with a two-story, 71,380-square-foot industrial building.  Karney proposes to modify the existing structure to create 92,715 square feet of office space and construct a six-level, 400-car parking garage at the back of the property.

Karney's presentation describes the building renovation as a by-right development, consistent with the height of nearby structures.  Renderings portray new cut-outs into the existing warehouse, creatingn light wells and amenity decks.  Its interior would feature the open floor plan, high ceilings and large windows typical of creative office space.

Neighboring property owner NSB Associates is planning an eight-story, 200,000-square-foot office building across the street designed by Frank Gehry.  Similar upgrades are also in development for a property next-door.
