LOS, ANGELES, CA (March 21, 2018)—Hackman Capital Partners, a Los-Angeles-based real estate investment firm and long-time Culver City stakeholder, announced today that Amazon will be occupying the entire 75,000-square-foot office portion of its new, mixed-use development, The Culver Steps.

The dynamic, four-story project is situated at 9300 Culver Boulevard in downtown Culver City, California, directly adjacent to The Culver Studios, the iconic television and movie studio, where Amazon Studios has already begun moving into the historic mansion and bungalows. The company soon will expand into newly developed office space at The Culver Studios, occupying a total of approximately 280,000 square feet by 2020.

Both The Culver Steps and The Culver Studios are owned by affiliates of Hackman Capital Partners.

“Amazon Studios is a world-respected, award-winning content producer,” said Michael Hackman, founder and CEO of Hackman Capital Partners. “And we are thrilled to welcome them to Culver City.”

In addition to the 75,000-square-foot office space at The Culver Steps, the transformative development will feature 40,000 square feet of curated retail space, a near-acre-sized public plaza with open green space and a two-level subterranean parking structure—making it a one-of-a-kind destination, not just for shopping and dining, but for outdoor movies, concerts and other special events. The project broke ground in November 2017 and is slated for delivery in early 2019.

Kennedy Wilson’s Lee Shapiro and Christine Deschaine are the exclusive listing agents for the retail portion of The Culver Steps. CBRE’s Jeffrey Pion represented the landlord in the recent Amazon Studio’s office lease, while JLL’s Blake Searles and Erich Sengelmann represented the tenant.
