Amazon will be occupying 75,000 square feet of office space at the mixed-use development known as the Culver Steps.

The race for space in downtown Culver City between two of the world’s biggest technology companies continues with today’s announcement that Amazon will be occupying 75,000 square feet of office space at the mixed-use development known as the Culver Steps.

The four-story project being developed by Hackman Capital Partners is located at 9300 Culver Blvd., lodged between the Culver Studios, the Culver Hotel and Trader Joe's.

Amazon Studios already announced that it would be moving into the historic mansion and bungalows of the Culver Studios and occupying a total of 280,000 square feet by 2020.

Just up the street, THR recently reported that Apple would be taking space at Lincoln Property Co.’s four-story mixed-use development project just across the street from Culver City’s Ivy Station, which is being designed by Gensler. HBO had previously said it would be the sole tenant there but ultimately backed out. 

“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.”

The Culver Steps development, which was designed by the firm Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects will create 45,000 square feet of retail space, a public plaza  and a two-level subterranean parking structure. The project broke ground in November 2017 and is scheduled to open in early 2019.
