New Culver City Apple Complex on the Rise


Gensler

Approximately one year after receiving approvals from both Los Angeles and Culver City, Apple is poised to begin construction on a major west side campus. Barriers and fencing are now being installed around the former Lakeshore Learning Store at 8888 Venice Boulevard, slated for demolition after approval in January.


This structure is just one part of a 4.5-acre parcel along Venice, National, and Washington Boulevards, where Apple has been given the green light to construct two buildings totaling 536,000 square feet, including office and production areas, along with parking for over 1,200 vehicles.


Designed by Gensler and endorsed by city officials in 2023, the development comprises contemporary four- and five-story buildings, each featuring terrace decks on upper levels. While there are no plans for ground-floor commercial spaces, ample entrances and shuttle drop-off points aim to activate street frontages. Additionally, food service areas will be located within both structures.


The project includes about 58,000 square feet of open space, including a central courtyard and a small park-like alcove. A landscaped promenade is planned along Venice Boulevard, with more modest greenery along National Boulevard.


Upon completion, the campus will effectively double Apple's office footprint in the Los Angeles area, which currently stands at approximately 500,000 square feet in and around Culver City. Apple already leases a 128,000-square-foot building nearby at Washington and National. With plans to expand its L.A. office to over 3,000 employees by 2026, Apple joins other tech and entertainment giants near Culver City Station. Across the street, Warner Bros. Discovery occupies 240,000 square feet at the Ivy Station complex, while Amazon holds about 600,000 square feet of space nearby.
