Civic Center Village

Project Information

The Village at Santa Monica is an exciting mixed-use, mixed-income community that is under construction in heart of Santa Monica’s Civic Center area.

The three acre site is an urban mix of 160 affordable rental residences and 158 luxury condominiums, 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, and walkable plazas and gardens. A walk street was created as a central spine through the site, providing pedestrians with a connection from Main Street to Ocean Avenue through landscaped plazas lined with retail, restaurants and outdoor dining, and public art. Additionally, Olympic Drive will be extended to Ocean Avenue, creating another important link in the Civic Center area. Environmentally sustainable features include anticipated LEED Silver Certified design, alternative energy programs, bicycle stalls, shared parking and financial contributions to the City’s transit programs.

The Village at Santa Monica is being developed by Related California. The design team includes Moore Ruble Yudell, Koning Eizenberg Architecture, KTGY Group, Inc., Grant Price Architects, and Mia Lehrer + Associates, Preliminary utility work on the site began in late 2011.

Overall project construction is anticipated to last approximately 24 months (roughly during 2012 and 2013) and activity will be largely contained on site. 



Know Before You Go


For the week of April 21, 2014, along Ocean Ave both Northbound and Southbound lanes will be open. Any impact to traffic from construction related activities should be minimal. On Monday (4/21) and Tuesday (4/22) traffic signal and striping will occur at the intersection of Main and Olympic resulting in possible delays as traffic will be limited to single lanes in both the North and Southbound directions.  For more information please contact Mike Castaneda at (626) 712-6944.
