City Yards Modernization

Project Information

The City seeks to redesign the area known at the City Yards at 2500 Michigan Avenue in order to modernize the aging facility. On July 28, 2015, Council approved a Professional Services Agreement with Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company (HDCC) and Miller Hull Partnership to provide a feasibility analysis of the proposed site, cost estimates and concept design services. The team will recommend strategies for building upon the site in conjunction with the concept designs.

The City Yards is a 14.7-acre site owned and operated by the City of Santa Monica and located at 2500 Michigan Avenue, near the intersection of 24th Street and Michigan Avenue. The City took ownership of the site in the late 1940s. The property has been used as a base for the City’s maintenance operations, storage facilities, and other industrial uses. Currently, a majority of the City’s field maintenance operations are located at the City Yards in 16 buildings and structures of various ages and conditions. These operations include:

· Facilities Maintenance
· Custodial Services
· Street Maintenance
· Fleet Maintenance
· Traffic Operations
· Resource Recovery and Recycling
· Water and Wastewater Operations
· Hazardous Waste Storage (City usage only)
· Fire Department Training Area

Consistent with Santa Monica’s sustainability goals, the City is excited to transform the City Yards into a community asset. The City Yards redevelopment will be designed and built purposefully with strict environmental sensitivity. The project aims to achieve Envision Platinum certification.
