In the bustling landscape of Southern California, CREED LA stands as a non-profit alliance, bringing together labor groups committed to sustainable development projects that adhere to local and state regulations. As we close 2023, let’s take a glimpse at a recently concluded project and look forward to the upcoming commercial ventures in Los Angeles.

West Edge Development – 12121 W. Olympic Boulevard 

Situated just north of Expo/Bundy Station in Sawtelle, the former Martin Cadillac Auto Dealership has undergone a transformation. The West Edge development, an eight-story, 200,000-square-foot office building, now stands proudly. Fronting the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Bundy Drive, it’s fully leased to the renowned League of Legends, the creator of Riot Games. Gensler, a distinguished design firm, orchestrated the creation of this glass-clad, concrete-framed marvel.

On the northern and western sides of the site, an L-shaped, seven-story structure has taken shape. Designed by AC Martin, it houses six hundred studios and apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms. The ground floor, spanning 80,000 square feet, is a retail haven anchored by Gelson’s Market.

La Cienega/Jefferson Station – 3401 S. La Cienega Boulevard 

Lendlease, a prominent Australian real estate and construction entity, has secured approvals for a 3.5-acre mixed-use complex at the former site of a Public Storage facility, now the future La Cienega/Jefferson Station. The development, designed by SHoP Architects, marks their inaugural project in the Los Angeles market.

Envisioned for completion in 2025, this complex will feature a 13-story residential building, standing at 150 feet, and a six-story office building with a height of 92 feet. Mass timber will be incorporated into the design, adding an eco-friendly touch. The project comprises 260 residential units, 227,000 square feet of offices, 2,869 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and parking for 785 vehicles.

Culver Crossings Campus Expansion – Venice and National Boulevards 

Apple’s Culver Crossing Campus, adjacent to Culver City Station, is expanding its footprint. Though primarily a Culver City development, a portion of this 4.5-acre project extends into Los Angeles. The LA side is designated for a low-rise structure, encompassing 334,000 square feet, supported by three levels of subterranean parking. When combined with the Culver City portion, the project will offer 536,000 square feet of offices, production spaces, and other facilities, accompanied by parking for over 1,200 vehicles.

Pending building permits, construction will occur in two phases. The Culver City building is set to commence construction this year, aiming for completion in late 2024. The LA construction will follow in the latter half of 2023, with an anticipated completion date in 2025 or 2026. The expansion will see Apple’s Culver City office grow to over 3,000 employees by 2026.

Oceanwide Plaza – Figueroa, Flower, 11th, and 12th Streets 

Nestled in the heart of Downtown, Oceanwide Plaza has faced delays but promises a potential revival in 2023. While mostly finished, the three-tower complex has been on hold since 2019. If funding falls into place, the complex could deliver 504 condominiums, an exquisite 184-room Park Hyatt hotel, and around 150,000 square feet of retail space.
