Remember that early Frank Gehry beach house in Venice for rent for $4,150 per month? Bargain. At least in comparison to this listing for the "Frank Gehry/Chuck Arnoldi Ocean Front Walk Artist in Residence" loft. Arnoldi, a long-time friend and artist, was also an early partner of Gehry's. The two built Dennis Hopper's place on Indiana Avenue in Venice, and also renovated this building on Brooks, where Gehry kept office space and Arnoldi a studio. Now this end unit, which includes a third floor roof deck and three stories of space, is available for rent. The unit also includes a two car garage with direct access to the unit, and is zoned C2 commercial limited live/work lofts. Price for architectural and artistic pedigree: $9,500 per month.
