Los Angeles isn’t exactly known for its walkability, but a proposed apartment complex along a bustling stretch of Melrose Avenue would place future residents near numerous grocery stores, diverse eateries, cocktail lounges, vintage clothing stores and city parks. 

On Tuesday, Beverly Hills-based developer Markwood Enterprises submitted an application to Los Angeles City Planning to construct a four-story residential apartment building consisting of 66 units. The 15,962-square-foot lot is located at 7100 W. Melrose Avenue near the intersection with La Brea Avenue. The project’s address would be stylized as Sevn1Hundred.

“Our goal is to enhance the vitality and walkability of this bustling urban corridor by providing a furnished, well-appointed living experience that incorporates a live-work feel for today’s modern working professional,” said Simon Aftalion, Markwood’s Development Director.

The floorplan breakdown would include 28 studios and 38 one-bedroom units with six units reserved for extremely low income households. Six penthouses would boast spacious, private roof decks “with exceptional views of the Hollywood Hills and beyond,” noted Aftalion. 

Select units on the upper floors would feature protruding balconies with perforated metal railings, while all ground-floor units facing Melrose and La Brea would incorporate “large storefront glazing” to ensure privacy.

Ground-floor amenities would include a lobby, leasing office, mailroom, bike room, gym, and a landscaped courtyard with a yoga deck, all linked by a central walkway. The fourth-floor would boast an indoor community room with stairs leading up to an expansive roof deck.

This outdoor oasis would be equipped with a fire pit, lounge seating, barbecues, dining tables, bartop seating, a tanning deck with chaise lounges, hangout steps, a yoga and exercise area, and raised planters for added greenery.

A total of 33 vehicle parking spaces would be provided in a single-level subterranean garage. Melrose Avenue is serviced by a couple of Metro bus routes and the proposed development site is less than two miles from the Hollywood/Highland Red Line station.

Designed by AERO Collective, 7100 W. Melrose Avenue would feature a tri-tone color scheme with black-framed windows and metal accents. The north elevation facing La Brea Avenue would boast a curved façade, creating uniquely-shaped floorplans for the units on subsequent floors.

While the current renderings are purely conceptual, we look forward to sharing more detailed imagery and design elements very soon,” added Aftalion.
