The Views (and Prices) Elevate the Pendry Condos Above Most of West Hollywood

If $85 million, the projected price for a condo on the top floor of 8899 Beverly Blvd., is out of your price range, you might want to consider that $30 million condo now for sale as part of the Pendry Residences on North Olive Drive at Fountain Avenue.

According to the Robb Report, that is the price of one of the 40 condos in the building under construction behind the Pendry West Hollywood hotel (formerly known as the Sunset Time) on Sunset Boulevard. (On the low end, there are condos available for only $3 million). The building is expected to open this Spring.

The prices aren’t the only aspect of the Pendry Residences that elevate them above the surrounding hoi polloi. “The residential building will be tiered along the slope of the block, providing owners with unobstructed views of the Hollywood hills and the layers of mountain ranges beyond, the twinkling lights of the city and even some vistas stretching to the ocean,” the luxury lifestyle publication reports. The condos “manage to feel incredibly secluded despite being just steps from famed night clubs and shopping in the district.”

The condos, some dubbed “residences” and some “terrace estates,” will range from “2,000-square-foot urban pied-a-terres to spacious, 6,000-square-foot condos with rooftop pools and substantial (some more than 2,500 square feet), landscaped outdoor living areas,” the Robb Report says.

There also will be a valet on site to escort condo residents from their cars. And there will be no need to explore the neighborhood. The Robb Report says the project includes amenities “such as a rooftop pool for those units sans private pool, a fitness center, a wine room and lounge. In addition to the room service, housekeeping, catering, and in-house dining with the hotel chef, there will be an “intimate concert/music venue inside the hotel, as well as a screening room, bowling alley, a spa, and both casual and fine dining by Wolfgang Puck. Owners will have membership in the hotel’s private social club as well, if desired.”

The Pendry Hotel and Residences are on land formerly occupied by the House of Blues and apartment and condo buildings behind it that stretched down Olive Drive to Fountain Avenue. One of the two-bedroom, one-bath units that was part of 1326 Olive bungalows had been on the market for $1.2 million before it was demolished for construction of the Pendry Residences.

The Pendry is a project of Montage Hotels & Resorts. Another recently opened hotel, the Marriott Edition on Sunset Boulevard at North Doheny Drive, also features 20 condos in a separate building behind the hotel and facing Harratt Street. Those one- to four-bedroom units are said to be priced at $5 to $8.5 million, with the penthouse on the market for $25 million.

I don’t begrudge the developer building luxury homes as long as they also build homes for people earning $25,000 to $75,000 too. We need housing for people who work in the community as well as those who play in/play with the community.

I think they look great. It’s not to tall and I like the different levels of the building.

Somehow I am reminded of the story in which a Russian noble is forced to ride for two long days on the train which primarily served the serfs – whom he despised. Full story not suitable for public space like this. On my blog.

Approved in 2010 by John Heilman, Jeff Prange, Abbe Land, John Duran with a NO vote by Lindsey Horvath after approval by the Planning Commission notably Commissioner Atchul and d’Amico.

Council Members Heilman, Duran and Land…..WHERE was your precious housing, affordable housing and low income housing? Duran remarked on increased city revenue.

Sad story.

I am confused. It is south of sunset, Behind the hotel of the same name, and will be much lower due to the slope of the hill which the street and new condo both are on. The mountains seem to be the one view obstructed as the south seems to have full view (something that can get annoying if you have 100% southern view. It is SUNNY all the time. Like the south facade of Empire West Tower. Most units have some form of sun screen/block because it is really intense all year long. QUESTION: HOW MANY LOW INCOME AFFORDABLE… Read more »

From an aesthetic point of view these are magnificent.

Looks great. They are stunning and I hope someone gets to enjoy them. Out of my price range but there is a market for them. They will sell.

Is there really a market for them at those prices. The price per square foot goes up 3 to 4 times IF IT IS ONE OR TWO BLOCKS FROM BEVERLY HILLS.

It goes down really fast (to market rate, albeit very high in weho) moving east.

BTW – HAVING PARKING ATTENDANTS AND I ASSUME DOORMAN SERVICES, JACKS UP MONTHLY HOA FEES BY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER MONTH (in addition to the mortgage at those prices)

Will the low and moderate income units have access to all these amenities?

All that scratch to live amongst a bunch of queer’s and queens.

“Queers and queens” used to be a jab at the gay community but nowadays there are just as many queens in the straight community. Life is about finding balance but it’s also about letting people be themselves while finding that for themselves. WeHo provides this. Besides some problems that I gripe about too, I’m proud to live in W. Hollywood. It’s one of the most desirable places to live in LA, if not the most desirable place due to its central location and amenities. And “eye candy.” And for some it’s the services that keeps them here. Nice to see… Read more »

I think straight people like living around the gays. We like to keep our stuff nice.

The tonedeafness of these developers is breathtaking. I predict that not a single one of these will be sold.
