In that time, a great deal of work has been done to the exterior of the 1960s-era building. Many of the glass balconies on the eastern and western façades have been installed and the protruding form that spans all ten stories has been fully enclosed. Scaffolding is still in place and sheeting covers a large portion of the Beverly Boulevard-facing elevation.
When construction wraps up in 2021, the luxury development will consist of 40 Tower Residences and eight Rosewood Houses. Renowned global architecture firm Olson Kundig designed 8899 Beverly to honor its past as the former home of the Los Angeles International Design Center, while bringing it into the present with a larger footprint and an elevated, residential feel.
To maximize opportunities for indoor/outdoor living, Olson Kundig incorporated Swiss-made curtainwall glazing systems and operable windows on each level. Sprawling, travertine-clad terraces and balconies provide sweeping views of West Hollywood and the Hollywood Hills, while vertical shutter systems add shade and privacy.
Inside, the Tower Residences are outfitted with handcrafted hardware and fixtures, wide-plank French white oak flooring and patinated bronze wall panels. Chef’s kitchens come complete with white oak cabinetry, Italian Calacatta cold marble countertops and backsplashes, custom Angel-Hair brushed stainless steel hoods, and top-of-the-line appliances from Gaggenau, Miele and Sub-Zero.
Each of the eight houses along Rosewood Avenue is one-of-a-kind, embracing natural materials such as wood, steel, glass, concrete and stone. Although physically separated from the condominium tower, residents of the Rosewood Houses will be able to take full advantage of the five-star services and amenities provided by 8899 Beverly.
These curated amenities include a residential lobby served by a 24-hour concierge, a fully-equipped indoor fitness area and yoga studio, 16 showroom-quality private garages, and a 12,000-square-foot outdoor area with a swimming pool, fireplaces, covered dining area and landscaped gardens.
The ground-floor retail and restaurant spaces are currently taking shape and will add to the building’s presence along this dynamic stretch of Beverly Boulevard.
Pricing is not yet publically available, but the 20,000-square-foot, full-floor penthouse will reportedly be listed for upwards of $100 million.
