MPG Car Rental
2423 Lincoln Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
Square footage: 1,157 s.f.
Date Completed: March 2002.

New construction of a car rental company. Located on the busy commercial corridor of Lincoln in Venice Beach, this lot lies within the Venice corridor jurisdiction and had many planning restrictions to overcome. The image is upscale, modern and clean. The flow required easy and fast car pick up, drop off and car checking areas. Materials used include metal cladding (Una-Clad), exposed concrete masonry block walls (rough and smooth blocks used to create a pattern), slate and colored plywood.
