Alta Loma West is a Low-rise condominium building with Pool in West Hollywood. Built in 1972, the building was originally an apartment complex before being converted to condos by Southmark Communities Inc in 1984. There are 47 condos on 3 stories. The building is a courtyard style building with condos on the inside facing the pool area and condos on the outside either facing the street or rear of building.
Alta Loma West is one of several condo buildings on Alta Loma Rd. To the South is Luxury Highrise Empire West, and across the street is Park Wellington.
Alta Loma West is a low-key building. The HOA has reinvested some money back into the building, spending a modest amount on the lobby and doing a re-piping in 2009. I found a picture of the building when it opened and it looks pretty the same since then. HOA dues are very low at $400/mo. Owners in the building have prioritized keeping the HOA dues affordable. Owners prefer to save that money or put it into the inside of their condo’s by remodeling. Yes, the building Hallways are a bit drab, and the elevator will need to be replaced, but all and all, Alta Loma West offers an outstanding location for an affordable price.
Alta Loma is a dead end street, so there is not any through traffic. It is a night and day difference from La Cienega Blvd just one street over. It’s quiet, but the Sunset Marquis Hotel just north provides some activity. You never know who you will see getting picked up or dropped off.
The Weho Bistro is walking distance, and so is CVS pharmacy, both located at the corner of La Cienega and Holloway. Down the Street is Dialog Cafe, which is a great spot for a latte or a breakfast sandwich. Up on Sunset is Equinox. And the most primo thing is you are sandwiched between Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, so you have plenty of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment within minutes.
All of the condos are single story. The building has a mix of 1BR and 2BR condos. There are (12) 1 BR condos that are 750 sqft and (35) 2 BR condos that are between 1,000 and 1,1000 sqft. Most of the Condos have 50 sqft balconies. Living Rooms have a wood burning fireplace.
