California Landmark Group (CLG) is seeking to add 112 units to an existing 33-unit apartment building across from Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City.

An application to Los Angeles City Planning calls for the demolition of a commercial building that sits adjacent to the rental residence, which includes BTS Thrift Store and Bagge & Son auto repair shop.

The proposed project, dubbed WM by CLG, would provide 130 market-rate units and 15 affordable units across both buildings. The new eight-story structure would contain 85 studios and 27 one-bedroom apartments, along with 57 subterranean parking spaces and 2,000 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space.

The residence would offer a vast selection of amenities, starting with a ground-floor lobby, mailroom, and a shared plaza that connects with the restaurant space. The next floor up, which is technically the third-story, would feature a Maker Space, an Analog Lounge and a Digital Lounge. There is an Analog Lounge on floors three through eight and a Digital Lounge on floors three through seven, providing residents with plenty of space for working or relaxing.

There would be a fourth-floor fitness center, a fifth-floor community room, a sixth-floor wellness room, a seventh-floor meeting/office space, and an eighth-floor co-working space. The eighth-floor would also tout an expansive roof deck with a pool and spa, plus an indoor clubroom.

Floorplans would range from 560 and 792 square feet and the majority of units would feature private balconies. Abramson Architects designed the modern apartment building, which would be clad in cement plaster, corrugated metal and architectural concrete. Pops of color would be found on the balcony projections and roof deck canopy.

If approved, future residents of WM by CLG would live within walking distance of downtown Culver City, home to numerous shops, restaurants, supermarkets, and historic landmarks like the Culver Hotel and Kirk Douglas Theatre. The Sony lot is located just across the street and Culver Studios (soon to be Amazon Studios) is less than a mile away.
