The stars have finally aligned for the Culver Public Market.

Protective fencing and k-rail barriers now encircle two long-vacant lots at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Centinela Avenue, where construction is now underway for the approximately 26,000-square-foot development.

Regency Centers, the developer of the project, is approved to build approximately 21,605 square of vendor space and an outdoor plaza at the northwest corner of the intersection.  Plans call for an adjacent four-story parking garage containing 184 vehicle stalls.

The smaller lot, located at the northeast corner of the intersection, will be developed with a pair of one-story buildings containing 5,230 square feet of space.  A 20-stall surface parking lot will be located at the back of the property.

Current signings at the Culver Public Market include Urbanspace, a company specializes in food halls and public markets, which has leased a large block of space at the intersection of Washington and Centinela.  Wicked Maine Lobster, based out of San Diego, will also open its first Los Angeles location within the project.

Construction is expected to occur over approximately 14 months, according to a representative of Regency Centers.
