A mixed-use development featuring housing and retail could rise at a prominent intersection in Culver City.
The project, a joint venture between Redondo Beach-based 3MR Capital and The John Buck Company, would rise from a 3.4-acre site at the intersection of Sepulveda and Jefferson Boulevards. Three existing buildings - occupied by a Post Office, a Coco's Restaurant, and a Valvoline - would be replaced by a multi-story project featuring 279 apartments, 55,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and 51,000 square feet of offices. Plans also call for 836 parking stalls, which would be located at-grade and on two basement levels.
According to a project description issued by the developers, the 11111 Jefferson project would include street-level open space and public art. Street-fronting retail space would line Jefferson and Sepulveda, while parking would wrap the northern side of the property along Machado Road.
Several community meetings are being held to solicit feedback on the project prior to official hearings before the Culver City Planning Commission and the Culver City Council.
Though the final project concept will likely include a combination of housing, retail, and office space, the current proposal is in the preliminary stages, according to Eric Shabsis, a representative of the developer. The number of units and square footage of the project are still subject to change before an application is submitted to Culver City - likely in the next month or two. The building will include affordable housing, says Shabsis, allowing for a height of up to five stories via SB1818 density bonus incentives.

The development site is located just west of the Mayumi, an extended-stay apartment complex that repurposed a former motel at 5630 Sawtelle Boulevard.
Farther south on Jefferson Boulevard, another retail center is slated to make way for a 175-room hotel.
