The Los Angeles Times had an interesting article Thursday about two new luxury mixed-use apartment buildings set to open on La Brea Avenue in West Hollywood.
According to the article:
The Huxley is rising at the southeast corner of Fountain Avenue and La Brea where a Jons grocery store used to be. The Dylan site, at the northwest corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and La Brea, last held a Carl’s Jr. and is across the street from the West Hollywood Gateway shopping center, built in 2004… Residents [of the new complexes] may multi-task in courtyards, rooftop pool decks or clubhouses… The six-story complexes designed by Newman Garrison + Partners will house shops and restaurants at ground level…
The apartments will be marketed to young “creatives” who spend a lot of time on the go and don’t work at traditional 9-to-5 jobs.
As we have reported previously, La Brea Avenue is booming, with multiple new buildings under construction, new restaurants opening, and an increasing amount of pedestrian activity and bicyclists.
The Huxley and Dylan buildings are set to open next spring (2014).
