5700 Hannum will deliver 309 new units of high-quality rental housing, with 27 of these units being dedicated to individuals and families at the “Very Low Income” level (those earning 31-50% of the Area Median Income). These units will help meet the City’s housing shortage. The Culver City Housing Element designates 5700 Hannum as a site for mixed-use development with density of up to 100 housing units per acre, and additional density is permitted due to the state’s density bonus law. The proposed project is consistent with this new mixed-use designation as adopted in the plan approved by the City Council.
This project enlivens the area and provides new features at the street level that enhances the experience for pedestrians. With 5,600 square feet of retail space, 5700 Hannum will activate the street with wider sidewalks and landscaping with planters and street trees, a beautiful open public plaza, built- in seating and nighttime lighting.
5700 Hannum incorporates smart, sustainable design features. In order to conserve water, project will capture rainwater and reuse it for irrigation or infiltrate it within the site. The building will not use natural gas for heating or stoves. Instead, it will be 100% electric in residential units. Other features include rooftop solar energy, energy-efficient smart lighting, drought tolerant and water efficient landscaping, 42 charging stations for electric vehicles and 92 spaces for bicycle parking.
