As noted earlier today, La Jolla-based developer Monarch Group wants to put up two big developments in West Hollywood, one at the site of the Jons Market, and the second on the site of the Carl's Jr at Santa Monica & La Brea. Your gray-colored Carl's Jr killer is seen above. According to the initial plans, the development would be a 6-story, 184-unit building with 12,808 square feet of ground floor retail space. You can see more small renderings on this section of architecture firm Newman Garrison + Gilmour Partners' web site. And again, developer Monarch is assuring everyone that its partnership with Bank of America is solid, so just push away all that chatter about the upcoming three-year recession.
Project description via the architect's web site:
This project is a luxury mixed use development in West Hollywood done in urban contemporary architecture, which fits perfectly within this self proclaimed “vibrant progressive urban village”. Keeping in sync with West Hollywood's special feel which is home to some of the country's most trendy boutiques, interior design shops, restaurants and of course the world famous, “Blue Whale” design center, a live, work, play all inclusive luxury environment has been created. The development consists of 184 luxury units ranging from 681 to 1221 sq ft. with 5 levels that sit atop over 13,150 sq ft of commercial/retail space built on approximately 1.37 acres. The public pedestrian level is engaging with its mix of retail, restaurants and open-air seating plaza. Exclusive to the residents is a unique 2-story clubhouse with views out over La Brea and state of the art fitness facility. On a separate level there is a private courtyard for recreation activities or pure leisure and a expansive rooftop terrace provides an outdoor lounge feel and offers entertainment facilities, BBQ & dining areas and a provocative "under the stars" theatre.
