The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
There's been some hand-wringing about the fate of Parcel B, but little has been said about another project that is near to the hearts of many residents of West Culver City: the Market Hall project on the northwest corner of Centinela and Washington (with, additionally, a parking structure on the northeast corner.) Well, now there's an update.
According to the City Manager's most recent report to the City Council, a design workshop with the developer, architect and the city’s traffic engineer was held to define the plans for the Market Hall project. City staff is currently in the process of executing a six-month extension agreement to the project’s Schedule of Performance with Regency Centers to allow additional time for the Successor Agency’s Long Range Property Management Plan to be reviewed by the State Department of Finance.
In other words, slow progress.
The goal of this project is to create a "public market" that will attract independently owned shops, kitchens and cafés to offer artisanal, fresh, local, and organic products such as heirloom coffee, organic produce and meats, local cheeses, fresh-baked breads, sweet confections, fragrant flowers and the like.
Here's what the site used to look like:
