With West Hollywood condominium project Habitat 825 fully sold, another Lorcan O'Herlihy-designed residential building in the neighborhood has started selling. Willoughby Lofts at 7917 Willougby Ave has hit the MLS, with prices ranging from just under $1 million for a two-bedroom, two-bath unit to a little over $1.3 million for the penthouse units. According to the LOHA web site, the site is zoned for medium density growth, thus making it difficult to "ensure that existing, views, adjacencies and open spaces will be preserved into the future." To address this, "exterior open spaces were brought inside the individual units....conceived as outdoor rooms." We think the translation from archi-speak to English means the units have interior patios, or as the listing so eloquently puts it "g8 outdr spaces." The building should be completed this month.
