SOLD! Dynamic Loft in West Hollywood (Represented Buyer)

I had the pleasure of representing a buyer in his first purchase recently, and he got a good one. After searching for several month's for the right loft with soaring ceilings, but ample closet & storage space (not an easy combination to find), we recently closed on this stunning loft in a modern 20 unit building in a prime West Hollywood location. The loft, built in 2004, features soaring 20' ceilings, modern finishes, and direct access from the street. While my client, and I, did not care for the epoxy flooring put on top of what once was polished concrete or the many different colors of paint on the walls, he got a great deal to offset those minor issues. In fact the property appraised at $35,000 higher then he paid for it! As I told him, changing floors and painting is easy, but finding 20' ceilings in West Hollywood is not. I can't wait to see it after he puts his stamp on the property.

Investors Continuing to Want In On The Hollywood Real Estate Action

Photo courtesy of Ken Lubas / Los Angeles Times

There was an article yesterday in the LA Times about another purchase of prime real estate in Hollywood, where the developer is planning a large mixed-use project. According to the times article, "Champion Real Estate Co. bought the paved 1.1-acre site behind the Hollywood Boulevard restaurant (Musso & Frank Grill) and between Cherokee and Las Palmas avenues from Common Fund. The price was not disclosed, but Hollywood real estate experts familiar with the property valued it at nearly $10 million." They are planning on creating a $50 Million dollar complex that would include residential, retail, and possibly a hotel. This is in addition to their purchase last year of a nearby Hollywood site that's over 2 acres. Among other ongoing development projects, there is currently a new mixed-use project being created on Sunset Blvd and Bronson by the mighty CIM Group, who has been at the forefront of the development in Hollywood with their groundbreaking Hollywood & Highland shopping complex.

The president of the Champion company sums up the development in the area nicely by stating, “We really love Hollywood,” President Robert Champion said “The city has designated Hollywood to be an urban location and we think, long term, a mixed-use project there will be a home run.”

For those of you that don't have the ability to buy or develop an entire building, but would like to invest in the growth in Hollywood, which is surely going to continue to boom; I have a loft at Hollywood & Vine for sale. Get in on the action and grab a piece of the growth!

Hollywood Urban Live/Work Lifestyle

Imagine a lifestyle where you move right into a furnished designer done loft in a secure doorman building at one of the most famous intersections in the world, Hollywood & Vine. You wake up in your hip designer done modern two story loft and go downstairs to your lower level, which houses your office work area - no sitting in traffic during your daily commute. At the end of the day you head back upstairs to get ready for a night on the town, and outside of the building you can walk a maximum of two blocks in either direction and you have top restaurants, shopping, and nightlife at your grasp within minutes. This saves you time, energy, gas money, and is just easier. Modern living at it's finest. Imagine that.

With the evolution of Hollywood there is now a chance to live this urban NYC style lifestyle, but with the ideal climate of Los Angeles. In the past several years there has been a trend toward mixed use buildings, loft conversions, high end restaurants, and nightlife in Hollywood. For the right person looking to be among the action with the ability to walk everywhere, Hollywood & Vine is the epicenter. For me, I would much rather live here then downtown, especially considering the prices are already comparable if not even less in Hollywood.

If this lifestyle appeals to you, this listing of mine may be just the right opportunity to own it.

Cool Hollywood Live/Work Loft

I am not sure the pictures really do this one justice, but this is a large open space with soaring ceilings and would be an ideal live/work situation. In addition to the pics below, not shown is a super sized garage that can be used as an office space, photographer/artist studio, etc. The 10 unit building was built in 2002, so is newer, and features hardwood flooring, open beamed ceilings, and a ton of natural light from the multitude of windows. A large balcony up top showcases views looking back at Hollywood and of the Hollywood sign in the distance. The floor plan and space allow for several different options and configurations depending on one's needs.

Is This The Coolest Penthouse Loft in LA?

This just may be the coolest Penthouse in LA, as it encompasses an entire floor of the uber chic Sailhouse Loft building right on Main St in prime Santa Monica just a block to the beach. This unit belongs to Avi Brosh, the developer/head of the Paligroup responsible for creating this building, re-imagining the 1920 Equitable office building in Hollywood into a modern loft building with the Lofts @ Hollywood & Vine, and the popular and growing Palihouse Hotel Brand. He was smart enough to keep this unit for himself and his family rather then sell it in the marketplace once this building was completed back in 2006. The unit has exposure on all four sides and an enormous wrap around balcony overlooking Main St. The white epoxy flooring is so clean, as are all the modern bathroom and kitchen finishes. The garage roll up doors are awesome, and allow the outside in for an ideal indoor/outdoor flow, which is true California living. Did I mention that it also has it's own private elevator? If looking for a large penthouse loft on the westside within steps to the beach and a ton of hip shopping and restaurants, it will be tough to top this one.

Love This Soho Loft; NYC

Anyone that follows this blog knows I am a huge fan of lofts. It is the soaring ceilings, walls of glass, and just wide open space that really does it for me. I don't operate in the Manhattan real estate market, but definitely love the aesthetics of modern lofts in old pre-war buildings. The right mix of modern and vintage character is just special. I saw this one on NY Curbed, and think it looks amazing. So cool in fact that I had to share it with you guys. There are starting to be a few more of these in Los Angeles, especially as Downtown Los Angeles continues to be redeveloped, but doubt many can touch this Soho loft. Curbed describes it as, "It's a 4,500-square-foot 4BR with 15' ceilings and eight cast iron columns." If you are wondering, this third floor loft at 84 Mercer in Soho, will run you a cool $7,000,000.
