Long-held plans to construct a mixed-use parking garage with retail and restaurant space are still alive in the Hayden Tract, according to the agenda for an upcoming meeting of the Culver City Planning Commission.
The project, which comes from Samitaur Constructs, would replace a surface parking lot at 8511 Warner Drive. Plans call for a five-story parking structure which would feature approximately 51,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses at its lower levels.
Eric Owen Moss, a frequent collaborator with Samitaur, is designing the proposed garage. Renderings show an almost cathedral-like structure, highlighted by a five-story atrium.
Plans for the parking garage were first filed with Culver City in 2008. Samitaur is currently seeking an extension of entitlements from the City's Planning Commission.
Samitaur and Moss are currently in the midst of construction on a 50,000-square-foot office building nearby on Jefferson Boulevard and have announced plans for a 17-story tower adjacent to an adjacent Expo Line station.
