On the eastern perimeter of Playa Vista, a long-vacant property is finally being developed into a small office and retail complex.
Kor-Ten, as the project is known, is now rising on a wedge-shaped property at the corner of Centinela and Mesmer Avenues. The four-story building will feature approximately 11,600 square feet of offices above 1,200 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space and a parking garage. A terrace level and street-fronting patio will offer more than 1,500 square feet of outdoor space.
Historic aerial images show that the property has been undeveloped as far back as the early 1950s.
