The latest in a number of large new apartment buildings on West Hollywood’s Eastside has officially opened.
Trammell Crow Residential has announced the opening of Domain West Hollywood, a building with 166 apartments and over 9.000 feet of ground floor retail space. The building is located at 7141 Santa Monica Blvd. between North Formosa and North Detroit and adjacent to the Dylan, a 184-unit apartment building opened in 2014.
Among the other relatively new apartment buildings in the once-gritty area of the Eastside are the Huxley, with 187 units, which opened in 2014 on the southeast corner of Fountain and La Brea avenues; the Angelene, a 179-apartment building at La Brea and Willoughby, and Avalon West Hollywood, a 370-unit building on Santa Monica Boulevard at North Fuller Avenue.
“We are delighted to introduce Domain as the newest addition to West Hollywood’s East Side,” said Garth Erdossy, senior managing director, TCR Southern California, in an announcement of the opening. “The neighborhood is steeped in the romance of Old Hollywood, which inspired us to create a lifestyle experience that evokes the glamour of the past, but with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Our goal was to be both local in context, and global in appeal.”
Erdossy called out the work of Studio One Eleven, architect for the project, and designer Jonathan Adler and artist Malika Favre. He also said that Yummy.com, a grocery delivery service, would be opening in the building’s retail space soon.
The Domain WeHo offers studios and one and two bedroom apartments in sizes ranging from 589 square feet up to 1,341 square feet While it is just announcing its opening, the Domain has been offering apartments for rent for many weeks. According to its website, only 66 of its 166 units currently are available.
The Domain’s rents are high compared to West Hollywood’s median rent of $1,940 for a one-bedroom apartment as calculated by ApartmentList.com. For example, the Domain website lists rents for available one-bedroom units from $2,799 for a 776 square foot unit to $4,390 for a 1,003 square foot unit.
Studio apartments are available at rents ranging $2,540 for a 690 square foot apartment and $4,385 for a 673 square foot unit with a balcony. Two bedroom rents range from $3,800 for a 1,042 square foot unit to $6,065 for a 1,229 square foot unit.
Those rents are in line with others at new apartment buildings. For example, according to Apartments.com, the Huxley (which doesn’t make public its available inventory or its rents) offers studio apartments with 681 square feet for $2,297 to $2,610, one bedrooms of 733 to 768 square feet for $2,633 to $3,026 and two bedrooms of 1,053 to 1,127 square feet for $4,949 to $5,174 a month.
