The Hollywood Colony has been open for less than three weeks, and has already sold 10 of its 14 houses. It was built under the city's Small Lot Subdivision Ordinance, which lets the developer stick a bunch of detached houses onto one lot, in this case at the corner of Lexington and Las Palmas in Hollywood. Like many small lot houses, these are each three stories, with most of the living space on the second and third floors, and they aren't really very small at all--square footage for the three different floorplans run from about 1,700 to 2,100. Most have three bedrooms (a couple throw in a fourth), and all have three and a half baths, high ceilings, lots of windows, open living spaces, and big master suites with party-sized bathrooms. Each unit has a roofdeck with a sink and cable hookup, so if you're the type who likes to wash dishes while watching TV under the stars, definitely check it out. This pocket of Hollywood is what they call up and coming, but it is actually coming up. There's stuff to walk to, and the agent repping the development tells us buyers are digging the walkability factor. The lowest asking price in the project was $779,000, though none has sold for under $800,000. Asking prices for the remaining units start at $835,000. The project was designed by Jay Vanos and built by Canfield Development.
