Surfas may have shuttered its Culver City kitchen supply store, but it’s not leaving the location altogether.

The beloved kitchen supply shop and eatery will lease space at the new mixed-use building replacing its former headquarters at 8777 Washington, at  the intersection of Washington Blvd. and National Boulevard, Urbanize reported. The project will also be home to HBO.

The company is launching a new food concept for the space called Best of Surfas. The food concept is slated to occupy at least a portion of the 4,500 square feet of ground floor retail space planned at the site.

Surfas sold its building there two years ago to developer VCN, who then resold the property for $25 million last year to a joint venture between Clarion Partners and Lincoln Property Co. Clarion and Lincoln are developing the offices for HBO.

Construction is expected to start this summer on the four-story, 128,000-square-foot office building, according to Urbanize.

Surfas said it’s still looking for a new location for its kitchen supply store. Its second shop in Orange County closed earlier this year. [Urbanize] — Subrina Hudson
