From the architect. A 54-unit building, The Hollywood is something of a pioneering project in a part of Los Angeles that, while emerging from years of civic indifference, remains a bit rough around the fringes. The multifamily courtyard condominium development announces the arrival of modern urban living to complement the entertainment, hospitality and retail revival under way in Hollywood.

The $15 million project is the first for-sale condominium building in a part of town populated mostly by rental properties. A Modernist façade features high-end contemporary forms tempered by the warm hues of a wood-composite exterior. The top level features double-height penthouses with mezzanines. The first four levels are comprised of flats. Inside, 17-foot ceilings create spacious living environments punctuated by high-end minimalist design. Two levels of subterranean parking accommodate 135 vehicles.

Each unit in the u-shaped building is distinguished by unique balconies and windows that give residents a sense of place and the pleasure of outdoor living in an urban neighborhood. Interior units and the central corridor open to a courtyard and its lap pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide generous views from every unit. Views focus on the Hollywood Hills to the north and the bustling Hollywood street scene to the east, south and west.
