The City Council of Culver City has adopted an interim ordinance that limits the height of new buildings to 58.5 feet, with an additional 13.5 feet allowed for architectural features and mechanical or electrical equipment.
The ordinance replaces an earlier one that limited buildings to 97 feet high and required City Council review for all buildings above 43 feet high. The new ordinance doesn't supersede stricter height limits already in effect in some parts of the city, according to City Atty. Joseph Pannone.
City Planning Director Jay Cunningham said the new ordinance will remain in effect until the city Planning Commission and the City Council review and amend provisions of the Municipal Code regulating height and other measures related to density.
