Construction is expected to begin soon for the Expo Line-adjacent Ivy Station development in Culver City according to Killefer Flammang Architects, which master planned the mixed-use complex.

Lowe Enterprises and AECOM Capital are developing the project, which will replace Culver City Station's five-acre park-and-ride lot with five- and six-story buildings featuring 200 residential units, a 148-room hotel and 210,000 square feet of offices above 36,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  The transit oriented development will also include pedestrian paseos, green space and a bike rental hub centered around the Expo Line.

The park-and-ride facility will give way to an underground garage with 1,500 vehicle stalls - including 300 for transit patrons.

In addition to KFA, Ivy Station's design team includes EYRC, Cuningham Group and RELM Studio.

The developers have set up a dedicated construction camera directly across the street, providing frequent updates on the project.

Scheduled for completion in 2019, Ivy Station joins a number of new developments at Culver City Station, including the Platform and a new apartment complex across the street.  Two office buildings are also planned for sites along Washington Boulevard.

Culver City is currently undertaking a T.O.D. visioning study which explores potential mobility improvements for the immediate station area and the surrounding community.  This may include protected bike lanes leading to the city's downtown area.
