In an effort to increase the amount of available affordable housing, developer, the Los Angeles Housing Partnership is working with the Culver City Redevelopment Agency to transform multiple parcels of land along Washington Boulevard into a mixed-use development community. Tilden Terrace will include a three-story structure built over subterranean parking, and consist of nearly 11,000 square feet ground floor retail and commercial space and 33 units of affordable housing on the second and third floors. The units will consist of one, two and three-bedrooms. In addition, the project will include a community room, a multi-purpose room, a cyber-library, a rooftop community garden and two interior courtyards.
The design and layout of the development will strive to both embrace and enhance the surrounding neighborhood. Emphasizing community density infill, the development will appeal to residents that work in the area in an ongoing effort to reduce commute time and fuel consumption. Initial demand estimates for residents are in excess of 10,000 individuals. Improvements to public spaces include new street furniture, crosswalks and landscaping. The project will also pursue a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver rating through the utilization of energy efficient appliances, lighting fixtures and finishes, domestic solar hot water and photovoltaic panels.
