Back on the Westside, construction is moving quickly on Lincoln Property Group's Runway development on Jefferson Boulevard. The $200 million development broke ground in April, and is intended to provide a town center for the massive Playa Vista campus. When completed in 2014, Runway will provide 420 residential units, 35,000 square feet of office space, and 221,000 square feet of retail space, served by a 1,400 car garage. Announced tenants include CVS Pharmacy, Veggie Grill and Whole Foods Market. The project was designed by locally-based architectural firm, Johnson Fain.

Runway is located just down the street from a different proposal from Lincoln Property Group: the second phase of their Latitude 34 office campus, formerly known as Horizon. The new office buildings would stand immediately north of the airplane hangar where Howard Hughes built the legendary Spruce Goose. However, the timeline for the office project is still unclear.
