Here is the latest SPF:a designed 33-unit condominium complex in West Hollywood. Again, I am a HUGE fan of the Culver City-based architectural firm, but I have some mixed feelings about this building. You may have checked out a blog or two ago regarding SPF:a's Woodbridge 12 in Valley Village? Another beautiful and simple form of architecture with the mantra of responsibility to our ecological resources.

It has taken awhile, but we are now seeing listings hit the MLS. This project has taken some time to get to the completion state. This building consists of 2 Bedroom / 2.5 Bath residences. Listings were released a little over a week ago with only one residence being featured: #206 offered for $645,ooo which includes 1,469sf of interior along with ample balconies. Originally, they were contemplating the offering at $670,000+. Things seem to be subsiding as the market truly is dictating some lower prices on these new buildings / lofts in areas such as Hollywood, West Hollywood and the Beverly Center Area.

These residences all have top of the line features and finishes. The Kitchens are outfitted with a Bertazzoni Range and Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher. Finishes include Caesarstone countertops along with full-height glass tiled back splashes that complement the sustainable Italian designed Modulocucine cabinetry. Anyone into the art of cooking would be thrilled in this chef's delight! It doesn't hurt that SPF:a has an exclusive with Modulocucine.

The handsome bathrooms are nothing less than clean and simple = inviting. Each bathroom is outfitted with responsible materials including the Caesarstone countertops, Modulocucine cabinetry and over sized floor tiles. No more grout! Each bathroom has a soaking tub and glass enclosed shower along with European fixtures. The spacious bedrooms look out onto a terrace. The most alluring aspect of these residences is the outdoor areas it provides us Southern Californians. It seems we still appreciate Mother Nature and the beauty of our City of Angels. Check out the view below.

Overall, the split floor plans work well for these two bedroom units. Who wants to be bumping walls with your room mate? By far, the Penthouses in this complex are AMAZING! With over 1,473 sf of interior space, they include over 1,000sf of outdoor terrace areas. This is where they get me. I am such a sucker for functional outdoor space.

If you have financing in the million dollar range, check out the floor plan for Penthouse 3:

HOAs run $360/mo to $435/mo and include gas, water, trash and common area. Each Residence includes two tandem parking spaces.

As always, feel free to reach me for showings or more information.
