CC Planning Commission to Consider Mixed-Use Development Project Next to Kirk Douglas Theatre

 

August 25, 2022

The Culver City Planning Commission will soon consider a mixed-use development plan for a couple of vacant buildings located next door to the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

The proposed project, named the Culver Theatre Residences, would rise from a site located at 9763 Culver Boulevard and 9814 Culver Boulevard and feature housing and commercial space.

Plans call for the construction of a pair of buildings which would feature 34 studio and one-bedroom apartments - as small as 350 square feet and 700 square feet respectively - above 2,724 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses facing Washington and a roughly 2,600-square-foot space for Center Theatre Group (which operates the Kirk Douglas Theatre), according to Urbanize LA.

Architectural plans do not show on-site parking.

REthink Development wants the green light for the project using density bonus incentives to permit a larger structure than zoning rules would otherwise allow. A city staff report mentioned two of the proposed apartments are to be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing while an additional four units would be reserved as workforce housing.

According to the development plan, the buildings would feature exteriors of metal and wood panels, and a rooftop amenity deck along the smaller structure against the eastern property line.

If approved, the project would be built using prefabricated modular units over a period of up to 18 months, according to Urbanize LA. Work could begin as early as April 2023.

The development site, long vacant, was more than a decade ago primed to become the new home of the Jazz Bakery. After those plans fell through, the Jazz Bakery set up shop in Santa Monica.
