The Residences at the W Hollywood is a 143-unit residential condominium project located at the iconic corner of Hollywood & Vine. The W brand is synonymous throughout the world with style, high-concept design, glamour and incomparable service, and The Residences at W Hollywood deliver these same features and lifestyle enhancements in a residential experience—all at the epicenter of the entertainment industry. As a homeowner, residents can expect W’s signature Whatever/Whenever service, cutting-edge design, innovative living spaces complete with dramatic views, premier nightlife and exclusive restaurants. The property, which is the second largest Silver LEED-certified building in the United States, gives residents the ultimate option for urban, green living without sacrificing top-notch amenities or location. It’s no wonder the building is home to world-famous musicians, Hollywood heavy-hitters and other owners who seek the best in Los Angeles urban living.
This summer, the property’s co-owner and operating company began overseeing various enhancements to the building’s interiors and amenities, including development of a residential rooftop pool deck with views from the Hollywood Sign to the Pacific Ocean, as well as a rooftop park for pet owners. Owners love the building’s proximity to top Hollywood eateries and destinations—Katsuya, Arclight, Pantages Theatre and the Cahuenga Corridor. Located less than a block away is the weekly Hollywood Farmers Market, Trader Joe’s and Space 15 Twenty. There’s a metro stop located on the property’s north side, making it easy for residents to participate in green transit while also providing convenient access to Downtown Los Angeles and other parts of the city.
The team at The Residences at W Hollywood will even help you to outfit your home with the help of local designers, including Interior Illusions—designer to one of the property’s seven WOW collection units.
Interior Illusions, a Southern California-based design firm and luxury furniture retailer, created “The Ultimate Bachelor Pad” exclusively for The Residences at W Hollywood. It made the perfect location for this year’s “L.A.’s Most Eligible Bachelors” photo shoot. The design, style and taste are rich in texture and create a sexy, intimate environment that appeals to a younger generation of Hollywood movers and shakers who like to work and play hard. Whimsical touches such as a life-sized cow and quirky wall art were chosen to lessen the formal luxury atmosphere and add to the residence’s playful purpose. Original artwork was commissioned from Robert Ivers, created especially for the manly space. Many property owners have used the partner design teams to outfit their homes, who tailor each space to the property owners’ unique tastes and lifestyle. Back To Media
