Roberts Projects is leaving Culver City, as gallery scene shifts to Central L.A.
A three-year plan for a new, state-of-the-art, art gallery at the foot of Crenshaw Boulevard and in the heart of L.A.’s Westside is moving forward.
After the city council voted 5-4 on Feb. 25, to allow developer and investor Robert R. Williams and his partners to build a new, $25 million gallery from the ground up at the southeast corner of Crenshaw and Coney Creek in Culver City, the developers are moving forward to begin construction on the project this spring.
For three years, Roberta Williams worked as an on-site project manager for the project and oversaw the final design, which included a new building, interior spaces, and new parking spaces. She also worked on the marketing and promotion of the project.
Roberta Williams, the co-founder of Roberta Williams Architects whose projects have transformed Hollywood, says, “Culver City is a wonderful city, and I’m proud to be a part of building a modern, inspiring and vibrant new gallery here. I’m proud to have worked as part of the team that created something with history, a legacy, and the promise of success for this unique project. Culver City has been in the entertainment industry for over 100 years, and I am honored to be a part of it.”
For Roberta Williams, the project was a dream.
“To be able to work in an environment like this is my dream job, so to be given a chance to build this project and bring this vision into reality is an honor. We have so many opportunities in L.A., and to be brought here is such an exciting opportunity.”
Roberta Williams is no stranger to working with people who want to bring a project to life in Culver City.
As she describes it, her relationship with the developer is not unlike that of a doctor with his patient. “I like to think as a doctor that the patient is the biggest fan and advocate for me
