A visual update on WeHo's Hancock Lofts, which we reported on earlier this month as going on sale this year and starting in the low $900,000s. The four-story mixed use will have 31 luxury "flats," seven affordable apartments on the ground floor facing Hancock Ave., and three units of retail facing Santa Monica Blvd. Tenants will include a new outpost of Culver City's Tender Greens restaurant, a Washington Mutual bank, and one yet-to-be-signed shop/cafe. Here's hoping for a tea or coffeehouse with outdoor seating that provides excellent views of the soon-to-rise Red Building.
Also in WeHo's Boystown is an interesting MOCA exhibit on architecture and urban design. The project is located outdoors, near the Pacific Design Center's old water fountain, and features large wood boxes that hold renderings of about ten L.A.-area projects imagined or embellished by local universities and arch-schools. Curbed tried to discover the name of this project/exhibit to no avail. Any help?
