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.

The project is being designed by local architecture firm Netarq, and constructed by the Sunshine Builders Group.

Historic aerial images show that the property has been undeveloped as far back as the early 1950s.

Data Center Planned for Parking Lot Near Union Station Terminal Annex

Transit-oriented data center?

A large parking lot next door to the Union Station Terminal Annex Building is slated for development as a data center. CoreSite Realty Corp., a Denver-based owner and operator of data centers across the country, is behind the proposed development, which would raze the parking lot at 900 N. Alameda Street for the construction of a four-story, 93-foot-tall data center with nearly 180,000 square feet of floor area.
