The Harlow Culver City is a 131-unit high-end mixed-use apartment building with 12,500 SF ground floor retail and office spaces. The six stories of new construction are built over an existing 3 level subterranean garage. The project includes one, two and three bedroom units, and features 54 two-story loft units on the fifth and sixth floors, offering views of Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and the ocean.

The apartment units feature stainless steel appliances, stone counter tops, hardwood-style flooring, soaking tubs, in-home security systems, and large patios and decks. Community amenities include: a resident lounge, a private conference room, a state-of-the-art fitness center; two landscaped courtyards with a water feature, a 6th floor terrace with a fire pit; and is also a pet-friendly community. The Shoppes at Harlow will include several higher-end chain and independent cafes and restaurants.

At 88’ tall, it is one of the tallest wood structures in the country. The scale of the massing was an important consideration. The use of long balconies, framed openings, and the variation of materials and colors broke down the façade into a more residential scale, while still claiming its urban presence within the downtown Culver City, allowing the Harlow to be distinctive from the medial and office buildings that surround it. The use of different scales and massing help break up the units into unique living spaces with over two dozen floors plans amongst the 131 units.

The Harlow is located in the middle of the diverse collection of shops, bars, restaurants and activities in downtown Culver City including the Kirk Douglas Theater located across the street. Residents can leave their cars in the garage as the building is within walking distance to several creative offices and studios, a bike ride to coastal Westside L.A., and a Metro Expo ride to downtown L.A. or the Santa Monica beaches.
