Demolition at 12444 Venice Boulevard Underway
Demolition of the old 12444 Venice Boulevard strip center has begun. This is one of two developments that was acquired by LaTerra in Mar Vista on Venice Boulevard. The other, 12575 Venice Boulevard, is already several floors below grade as they dig their subterranean parking. 12444 Venice Boulevard has gotten tremendous push back from neighbors as well as City Councilmember Mike Bonin as the project was going through the entitlement process. Despite staunch opposition, the project is moving forward and will be the tallest building in Mar Vista, at six-stories containing 77 apartments, 2,100 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for 84 vehicles. 12575 Venice Blvd is supposed to be completed in about nineteen months with 12444 Venice Blvd completed in around twenty-four months.
