Culver City Council to Hold Hearing on Wende Museum's Expansion Plan
December 9, 2021
The Culver City Council will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. next Monday, December 13, to review Wende Museum's plan to add a community center, affordable housing and community garden to the southern portion of the armory property at 10808-10860 Culver Boulevard.
The proposed redevelopment plan includes a 7,022-square-foot, 3-story community center, six affordable dwelling units and reconfigured community garden at the Culver Boulevard property near Veterans Park, city officials said.
AUX Architecture is designing the affordable housing units as well as the community center, which would include landscaped terraces and an exterior of painted stucco, concrete, and aluminum.
The project, proposed on a 1.55-acre site between Coombs Avenue and Elenda Street, does not include the Scout House and the paddle tennis courts, city officials said.
A construction memo mentioned a probable start date for the project in January 2022, with completion expected to follow in October 2022.
The Wende is an art museum, historical archive of the Cold War and center for creative community engagement that explores and inspires change. It is located at 10808 Culver Blvd
