$100M Mixed-Use Building Planned Near Hollywood and Western

Construction on High Line West could begin in about a year.

A 280-unit apartment complex and shopping complex is in the works for a portion of Hollywood Boulevard near Western Avenue, reports Curbed L.A

Commercial real estate developer Sonny Astani plans to build a complex called High Line West, inspired by New York's High Line park, with an elevated park open to the public, apartments and street-level shops.

Astani Enterprises bought the 1.9-acre site for $10.75 million, according to the article. 

Astani told the L.A. Times work on the $100 million project could begin in about year and would take 18 months to build.

The site is home to a city landmark building that was known as Falcon Studios. Olympic fencer Ralph B. Faulkner taught swordplay to Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone and Douglas Fairbanks Jr while his wife ran dancing and acting classes. It now houses a music recording studio.

Astani intends to preserve the facade of Falcon Studios and build around it.

It is a disaster in front of us~! CIM is rehabing the Gershwin Hotel on the corner of Hollywood and Garfield Place. They told the neighbors there would be parking provided for the seventy ... 7 0 units...yes...SEVENTY units. CIM tells us that the parking will be provided in a strip mall they want to build on the corner of Hollywood and Western Avenue where the old hot dog stand used to be. Now..what they say? Oh...its an old building..they didn't have parking in 1921..why do we have to provide for parking now??? My question to them was...where are 70 cars going to park? I was told to talk to city council...nice way of passing the buck!
