Seritage Growth Properties has rebranded the former Santa Monica Sears at the Mark 302, and plans to repurpose the landmark three-story building with a mixture of creative offices and retail space.

The building, which is slated for occupancy in 2018, will feature nearly 53,000 square feet of office space on its top two floors and approximately 58,000 square feet of retail space at the ground and basement levels.

The project, which is being designed by House Robertson, is pointedly leaving the historic exterior of the Sears property intact.  More substantial alterations are planned for its interior, including a new skylight to introduce natural lighting into the building.

According to a leasing brochure, the property features 180 parking space, with the potential to add more.  The Sears building is located immediately west of the Expo Line's Downtown Santa Monica terminus.

To capitalize on this investment, the Cit
