Downtown Culver City, long a destination for dining out, is quickly becoming a residential community thanks to the never-ending expansion of the Palms neighborhood.  The latest chapter in this ongoing saga is headed to an approximately half-acre property located between Venice and Washington Boulevards.  According plans filed earlier this month with the City of Los Angeles, a parking lot at 3822 Dunn Drive is slated to give way for an 86-unit apartment complex with a vehicular garage.

The proposed multi-family building is one of developments in Palms and Culver City that has been prompted by nearby Expo Line Stations.  The mixed-use NMS@Culver City is currently under construction immediately south of 3822 Dunn Drive, bringing 121 apartments and 12,000 square feet of retail space to the corner of Washington Boulevard and Hughes Avenue.  A few blocks west, an art deco-inspired apartment complex is planned on Overland Avenue, directly across the street from Sony Picture Studios.
