CurbedWire: More on Banta House, Brockman Sales

New, 28 comments

HOLLYWOOD HILLS: The good people at Lotta Living do some architectural legwork on the Richard Banta-designed home (pictured) mentioned earlier this week in ListingsWire. It turns out this two-bedroom, two-bath home was not only designed by the architect, but functioned as his home too, for a very brief while. While the architect is perhaps not as well known as some of the firms he worked for (notably Welton Becket and Armet & Davis), he did win a 1961 AIA "Award of merit for merchant housing" and a 1963 AIA Western Home award. Original asking price in 1959: $42,500. Advertisement after jump. [Curbed Staff]

DOWNTOWN: The sales office for the Brockman, that 1921 Beaux Arts building at 530 W. Seventh, was supposed to open in June, and then July, and now will open in October, according to a representative for the building. There are 80 units and the rep stated that 10 are in escrow. We took a tour of the building this summer. [Curbed Staff]
