Hackman Capital Partners, who also owns the adjacent Culver Studios and new 400,000 SF expansion which will eventually be the new home of Amazon Studios, and several other subsidiaries of the Seattle-based tech behemoth, has taken one giant step forward in realizing this development with the installation of a tower crane at the site. The project officially began in November 2017 and will ultimately consist of a four-story building containing 75,000 SF of office space, 40,000 SF of retail and 35,000 SF public plaza. It’s been reported but not yet confirmed that Amazon is also the anchor tenant of the Culver Steps project.
EYRC Architects has been slated to design the Culver Steps with landscape and open space work to be done by SWA Group. The project is titled Culver Steps due to the iconic staircase that melds the building into the surrounding plaza.
