A 29-storey skyscraper complex and condominiums across from the station is currently under construction. It will be built by the Carmel Partners firm.[3]

Los Angeles architect Eric Owen Moss has proposed a glass ribbon tower with underground parking with within steps of this station. The tower began construction in late 2017.[4][3]

A large parking structure located just south of the station provides "park-and-ride" access to the station.

The station's art was created by artist Daniel Gonzales. The installation titled "Engraved in Memory"[5] consists of linoleum prints that depict the history of the Ballona Creek and Culver City area.[6]

History

Originally a stop on the 1875 Los Angeles and Independence Railroad, 1906 Los Angeles Pacific Railroad and 1911 Pacific Electric railroads, it closed on September 30, 1953 with closure of the Santa Monica Air Line and remained out of service until re-opening on Saturday, April 28, 2012. It was completely rebuilt into an elevated station for the opening of the Expo Line from little more than a station stop marker. Regular scheduled service resumed Monday, April 30, 2012.
