Where: 1755 Argyle Street, Hollywood/Los Angeles
Rents: $3,395 to $6,595
What: The 18-story Argyle House, a collection of 114 units and the latest entry to LA’s luxury rental market designed by LARGE Architecture for Related California, the West Coast affiliate of Related Companies, one of the nations largest privately-held developers. With a distinctive, wavy facade and definite MId-Century vibe, project is a mix of studios, 1-bed and 2-bed units, all with terraces; the interiors, public spaces and outstanding resident amenities are by Marmol Radziner.
Technology: Argyle House is first building in Los Angeles to deploy Hello Alfred, an “assistant app” that functions as a concierge, connecting residents 24/7 to maintenance, housekeeping services and more– like hanging your dry cleaning in your closet and delivering groceries in your kitchen. For more down-to-earth pleasures (literally) Argyle House is a ten minute walk to the Hollywood Farmer’s Market, LA’s great foodie passeggiata on Sundays. Below, one the amenity level lounges and the living/dining/kitchen of the spectacular penthouse unit– for which the lease terms have not yet been disclosed.
Good Neighbors: The exterior intentionally honors the adjacent, spindle-topped 1956 landmark Capitol Records tower by Welton Beckett Associates.
