A joint venture between Steaven Jones Development Co. and Creative Office Properties are developing INclave, a three-building, live-work-play campus in the Marina Arts District of Marina del Rey, Calif.

Located at 4065 Glencoe Ave., INclave will consist of 49 luxury residential units, 65,000 square feet of tech savvy, amenity-rich creative office space and a 2,160-square-foot café. 

“INclave is unique because we are not creating just a building, but an experience,” Lawry Meister, SJDC’s president and Creative Office Properties’ founder, told Commercial Property Executive. “The property has the amenities and the services that you would normally have just with a luxury apartment building, shared with the office tenants.”

The office component will feature 22-foot high ceilings, abundant natural light, polished concrete floors, skylights, open kitchen areas adjacent to private patio areas and private restrooms, and will be delivered ready for tenants’ wiring and furniture, allowing for easy move-in.  

According to Meister, high-speed fiber and automated parking, as well as other progressive technologies, are essential to enabling today’s tenants to flourish.

The secured HUB area will boast a large pool and spa; a covered pavilion area with outdoor fireplace, comfortable seating and flat screen TVs; a large outdoor community table adjacent to BBQs and a parking area for food trucks; an area for lawn games; an open space with tables and chairs and room for early morning Tai Chi classes; a large wood and concrete bleacher for outdoor meetings or movie nights; and a secured pet play area with pet grooming facilities. 

The second-floor mezzanine will feature a gym and yoga studio with adjacent terrace; a business center with several meeting rooms and a quiet work area; and a community room with full kitchen, TV area, pool table and community dining. 

Live-Work-Play Destination

The residential units will be situated on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floor of the campus, and offer a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units with open floorplans, wood-style floors, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, washer/dryers, and abundant natural light. Approximately 50 percent of the units will have gas fireplaces, and every unit has a private balcony, with large balconies on most of the 5th floor. 

INclave’s 2,160-square-foot café will serve breakfast, lunch and a light dinner fare.

“Our tenants are looking for a balanced lifestyle experience, and emphasize health and wellness while seeking increased productivity and creativity,” Meister said. “We have designed INclave to provide space in a bustling area where people can live and work in harmony, and be part of an exciting, forward-thinking community.”

INclave will also offer five surface spaces and 277 parking spaces in a two-level subterranean AUTOParkit TMSystem, an automated parking system designed and installed by Dasher Lawless. There will also be 10 electric vehicle charging stations available.

The development will be located closeby numerous restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, grocery stores and health and beauty facilities. 

“Marina del Rey is the perfect location for INclave—in between Santa Monica and Playa Vista, and only 10 minutes from Culver City,” Meister said. “The Marina Arts District is home to a number of technology, entertainment and other creative businesses that have favored creative office space. It also has condominiums and apartments that are appealing to the same demographic.”

The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019. 

There has been a lot of activity with the live/work/play philosophy in mind of late. Encore Capital Management is developing Plantation Walk, a $350 million mixed-use development in Plantation, Fla., that will encompass nearly 200,000 square feet of retail space as well as office, hotel and residential space. Irvine Co. recently celebrated the grand opening of its newest office building in Irvine, Calif. The high-rise is located at 400 Spectrum Center Drive, one of California’s most successful live-work-play communities.
