The excellent Hollywood 411 blog reports that the PaliHouse Hollywood project has begun construction. As you may recall, the PaliHouse is the sister project to the West Hollywood version, which we've described previously. Via the blog:
Just a tad north of Hollywood and Vine, get ready for Pali House. Developers plan 57 residential units with a ground level restaurant and bar/lounge on the courtyard level. The anticipated completion is spring 2008. And from the Architect's web site, we learn: "Dynamic slivers of light and images cut through minimally elegant volumes of calm and comfort. The influence of the Hollywood Film Industry weaves through the building, as both moving and still large-scale images are incorporated in efforts to juxtapose ideas of movement and pause." That should head off any questions about the giant image of James Dean.
