24-Story Mixed-Use Apartments Slated For Hollywood/La Brea

New, 47 comments

Church is out, development is in on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, where the Christian "hipster megachurch" Mosaic could soon get the boot for a three-building, 410-unit apartment complex—Horizon Hollywood. (Remember the church's contest-winning Super Bowl commercial?) A release from developers LeFrak and Kennedy Wilson announcing the project today says the mixed-user will include 10,000 square feet of groundfloor retail and eateries, plus a 9,300-square-foot pedestrian plaza that will hopefully give this prime corner near the Hollywood/Highland Red Line a boost. (The Avenue apartments, down the block on La Brea, have brought a little more pedestrian action to the area, but not a lot.)

There's not much else at this intersection right now, except a couple strip malls and a giant office building, but developers plan to put up buildings of six, eight, and 24 stories in a development they say will "emphasize pedestrian-friendly design features," like bike amenities. Work should start in 2016 and wrap up about two years later.
