Open House Report, LA Edition: Three Condos Worth a Glance


Los Angeles is full of vast, stucco condo buildings— few of which are especially interesting. Here are three recent projects open this weekend really worth a look.

751 North Fairfax Avenue, #1, West Hollywood Vicinity, $619K
Designed by award winning architectural firm Pugh+Scarpa and built in 2010, the live/work Cherokee Lofts is one of our LA favorites— the design permits the facade to change endlessly with foldable screens that conceal/reveal the interiors. The 1-bed, 2-bath unit has very basic detailing but a lot of style, outdoor spaces and green construction, plus 2 parking spaces and HOAs of $479 a month. There’s another unit in the building also on the market (and open) for $599K. If you’re all about pasture-raised meat and heritage breeds, artisan butcher Lindy & Grundy is in the next block. Open Sunday, June 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.

1100 Hope Street, #1001, Downtown LA, $1.05M
A big view of the Staples Center may not be everyone’s choice, but there’s something to be said for this condo’s very urban setting. Inside the ceilings are just under 11 feet high, with open views and huge windows, and the plan is very much like an updated loft with exposed concrete walls and sliding panels instead of bedroom doors. Built in 2007, the top-floor unit comes with 2 parking spaces, a pool, 24-hour security and HOAs of $700 a month. Check out the listing link for floor plans. Open Saturday, June 9 from 2 to 4 p.m

11321 Missouri Avenue #203, West Los Angeles, $549K
This undistinguished but quiet neighborhood is somewhere between UCLA and Santa Monica and these brand-new condos aren’t far from Sawtelle Boulevard’s bit of shopping. The building’s not all that distinguished, either, but the details in this 3-bed, 3-bath unit are just fine— and the asking price is great. HOAs estimated around $400 a month. Plus you get to be the first to live there. Another plus— just a few minutes walk from the Nuart Theater, where you can watch film classics in wide-screen splendor instead of on your laptop. Open Saturday and Sunday, June 10-11 from 2 to 5 p.m.
