The Two-Story Office Building Will Be Prominently Located Along the 10 Freeway
BKNM, a Santa Monica-based developer headed by Ben Vandebunt, has submitted proposals for the construction of a 47,800-square-foot office building, as reported by Urbanize Los Angeles. The planned development will be situated at the addresses 3402 West Pico Boulevard and 2337 Centinela Avenue, with the building intended to replace an existing parking lot.
Designed in the Mid-century modern-style, the two-story office building will be prominently located along the 10 Freeway, adjacent to a three-story, 44,800-square-foot building formerly serving as The Recording Academy’s headquarters, known for hosting the Grammy Awards. The new V-shaped structure, named “Pico Green,” will boast an expansive courtyard embellished with 40 new trees.
Designed by ShubinDonaldson, located in Culver City, the offices will be constructed using “hybrid massed timber” and will feature floor-to-ceiling lattice windows. An underground parking facility spanning three levels will be available, accommodating 242 cars and 30 bicycles to cater to the building’s needs.
