Combined Properties Honored at the 44th Annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards

Washington, DC (June 4, 2014) – Combined Properties, Incorporated was celebrated at the 44th Annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards today at a gala luncheon hosted by the Los Angeles Business Council that drew hundreds of the region’s leading architects, designers and building professionals. More than 35 world-class projects from across the architectural spectrum were recognized for design excellence and community impact.

Combined’s winning entry was the 9300 Culver Boulevard (Culver City, CA) Mixed-Use Development project which won the Design Concept category.  The 4-story, 115,000 SF project includes ground-level retail, a 4-story office building and a Grand Stair that leads visitors up to a restaurant pavilion and landscaped Elevated Plaza perched above the existing Town Square, in the heart of downtown Culver City.   Adjacent to the site are multiple historic and iconic structures such as the Culver Hotel and Culver Studios.  ‘Tara’, the house from “Gone With the Wind”, and its gorgeous front lawn, sits directly across the street from the development site.  Construction is expected to commence in late 2015.

Moderated by Sam Lubell of the Architect’s Newspaper, approximately 500 top professionals were in attendance for the annual event— the first design awards of the season. The awards are presented to entire project teams – including the building owner, designer, contractor and developer – for their contributions to exceptional design in L.A. County.

“The L.A. Architectural Awards celebrate truly outstanding projects that demonstrate an unyielding commitment to great design and meaningful sustainability,” said Los Angeles Business Council President Mary Leslie. “Today’s winners enhance our quality of life and prove that Los Angeles remains a global hub for world-class architecture.” A distinguished jury of owners, contractors, architects and civic leaders selected this year’s winners from hundreds of submissions.
