A series of vacant buildings located next door to the landmark Kirk Douglas Theatre will be redeveloped with a mixed-use project featuring housing and commercial uses. The pair of low-rise buildings will 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) on Culver. The housing will be constructed from Prefabricated Modular units. Two of the proposed apartments are to be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level, while an additional four units would be reserved as workforce housing.
Amenities include a pedestrian paseo at ground level, allowing site users to cut between Culver and Washington Boulevards. The buildings would feature exteriors of metal and wood panels, and a rooftop amenity deck along the smaller structure against the eastern property line.
