Karney Properties is a creative placemaking real estate firm.

Our Company focuses on bringing great building and landscape using meaningful design, in tandem with art and culture, to activate adaptive reuse and ground up development projects.

Creative placemaking strategies are applied broadly across many facets of the design of Karney’s industrial, creative office and commercial spaces. Our real estate development projects — ranging from transit-oriented development in Culver City, to creative office in Playa Vista, to neighborhood revitalization projects in Anaheim, Hawthorne and Torrance — employ exceptional design, thoughtful open space, and artistic expression, making our spaces comfortable and enjoyable places to work. Our assets are always designed as places in which our long-term ownership can take tremendous pride and which bring value to the community.

Karney’s creative process begins by envisioning what we would like to see –

Artfully designed buildings, an inclusive community, and gathering places.

We accomplish this vision by employing the most creative, out-of-the-box architectural firms that view their design as an evolving, iterative artform, not a static practice. Local, creative, and innovative architectural firms like Boto Design, Lorcan O’Herlihy, Herdman Architecture + Design, Koning Eizenberg, Abramson Teiger, Gensler, and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) are just some of the firms we have selected for our projects.

The community and gathering spaces we design create meaningful interaction.

The community and gathering spaces we design in our projects need a special kind of landscaped environment to create meaningful interaction. We select our landscape architect very carefully to make sure the exterior atmosphere compliments the interior. Our choices in landscape firms – Design Workshop, Mia Lehrer Architects, LRM – focus on the open space design to ensure memorable private and public experiences.

Finally, we curate our buildings with creative tenants that appreciate and take full advantage of the inspiring buildings we renovate and build. Many of our tenants are at the cutting-edge of innovation and invention. Tenants have included Tom’s Shoes, SpaceX, Disney, Big 5, Digital Domain, Vista, Tesla, Seimens Corporation, Motorola, Costco and LKQ.
