The 78-unit apartment building at 410 North Rossmore Avenue has a long and fascinating history. 

Envisioned as a French Gothic-style structure that would have upstaged its neighbor, the iconic El Royale, the project ran out of funding on two separate occasions throughout the 1930s and 40s. It was ultimately completed by the United States Army in 1944 with far fewer units and flourishes than were intended.

But 410 North Rossmore has been given a new lease on life and is in the midst of an extensive restoration project that will see the addition of at least four floors, state-of-the-art resident amenities, and seismic safety upgrades.

Residential developer Domos Rossmore LLC, which purchased the property last spring, has revealed the first renderings of the future 410 North Rossmore. The Atlanta-based company worked alongside Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA) to reimagine the Hancock Park landmark while preserving its classic exterior.

Once complete, 410 North Rossmore will feature studio, one-bedroom and co-living apartments, accommodating upwards of  225 residents. Sixty percent of the apartments will be traditionally occupied, while the remaining 40 percent will be co-living units. These will include private bedrooms and bathrooms with shared kitchen and living room facilities, “providing the building with attainable rental space,” according to a press release.

Residents will benefit from a host of lifestyle amenities, such as a gym, multi-purpose room, co-working spaces, a pool and spa, lounge deck and a rooftop event space. Select floors will also boast open, outdoor living areas.

“Our 410 Rossmore project represents a new paradigm and contribution for helping to address LA’s housing crisis,” said Lorcan O’Herlihy. “Not only does it carefully restore a classic ‘30s building but creatively weaves additional housing in and above this significant building.”

Construction is expected to begin in May of 2021 and will take approximately 22 months to complete.
