East Hollywood: New apartments and developments map

Hundreds of new apartments are under construction in the neighborhood

View as Map

Hollywood is awash in construction, but East Hollywood, its eclectic, transit-friendly neighbor, is getting in on the action, too. A mini-boom of development is bringing hundreds of apartments to the community right now. New buildings are sprouting up along with new places to eat—including some controversial ones that are replacing long-time neighborhood institutions.

Bounded by Hollywood and Beverly boulevards and Western Avenue and Sunset Boulevard/Hoover Street, East Hollywood is home to Thai Town and Little Armenia, Barnsdall Park, and four subway stops.

That transit accessibility, along with proximity to other trendy ’hoods (Silver Lake and Los Feliz, for example) and its growing restaurant roster—Eater LA has proclaimed that East Hollywood is emerging as one of the “most desirable dining scenes” in LA—could very likely explain the neighborhood’s appeal to real estate developers.

This map tracks more than a dozen of the new buildings planned or under construction for East Hollywood. For more maps on development in other pockets of Los Angeles, take a look at:
