Hackman Capital Partners confirmed on Wednesday that Amazon will lease the entirety of the office component at its mixed-use Culver Steps project in Culver City.

The deal is for all 75,000 square feet of office space, the Los Angeles Business Journal reported.

The Real Deal first reported in January that the e-commerce giant was nearing a deal to lease the office portion at 9300 Culver Boulevard. Culver Steps also includes 45,000 square feet of retail space and a 10,000-square-foot plaza. Hackman broke ground in November and looks to complete construction by the end of next year.

The lease adds to the 280,000 square feet Amazon’s entertainment division is leasing across the street at Hackman-owned Culver Studios, creating a massive campus in the heart of downtown Culver City. Around 700 Amazon employees will migrate to the storied 14-acre studio complex from the Santa Monica office.

Hackman has been busy in Culver City in recent years, helping to fuel the city’s growth as a tech hub with creative office conversions. Along with Culver Steps and Culver Studios, Hackman owns the 85,000-square-foot campus at 5500 Jefferson Avenue, which sources told TRD that Apple will take over.

TRD also reported in January that Apple is also leasing all of Lincoln Property Company’s 128,000-square-foot office at 8777 Washington Boulevard. [LABJ] — Dennis Lynch
