At the corner of Sunset and Western, a significant mixed-use development is bringing fresh vitality to this re-emerging East Hollywood neighborhood. The design received unanimous planning commission approval for the ways in which the commercial mix creates an engaging streetscape at this major intersection and adds 412 units of much-needed rental housing.
Ground floor space for shops, cafes, and a grocery store support pedestrian traffic on the way to nearby Metro stations. Rental units include studios, one and two-bedroom units, many with private outdoor decks, a community room and a courtyard with a pool on the podium level. A unique four-story stack over the community space is comprised of interlocking micro-units that share a common lounge, laundry and large deck on each floor.
The contemporary architecture features bright vitrines and sophisticated finishes for street-level retail and an articulated facade with defined windows and glass-fronted balconies on five residential floors.
