LaTerra Select Los Feliz I
Los Angeles, California
LaTerra Select Los Feliz is located at 4850 Hollywood Blvd., close to the merger of Sunset Blvd. and Hollywood Blvd. and at entry to the highly sought after community of Los Feliz. There has been no new apartment production in Los Feliz in recent time, creating a shortage of housing in the community. This premium site is one block away from a large medical center hub, consisting of 3 different hospitals where approximately 15,000 people work, and the site is only an 800-yard walk to the Sunset/Vermont metro station and a 15-minute drive to downtown Los Angeles.
The property is planned to include 96 apartment units with 9,500 square feet of street level retail. The property is contiguous to Barnsdall Art Park, containing a Frank Lloyd Wright house high on a hill with spectacular views to Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood sign. The project architecture will be designed to honor the characteristics of the community, as well as view sheds and the Frank Lloyd Wright house. Additionally, the project will be built to a height less than allowable, and will have a step-back feature that will result in a lower building at the street level and will ensure views from Barnsdall Art Park are not impacted, and at the same time, while creating two large roof top decks for residents of LaTerra select Los Feliz.
