8960 Cynthia St
West Hollywood CA 90069
8960 Cynthia is a 45-unit midrise condo building in the Norma Triangle neighborhood of West Hollywood. Built-in 1974 as apartments and converted to condominiums in 1980, this building has a great walkable location, big balconies, and low monthly HOA dues. Condos on the South Side of the buliding have Views. The HOA has updated all of the Plumbing in the building and recently redid the lobby. As a result, Ventless In Unit Laundry can now be installed in all condos in addition to the community laundry rooms on each floor. I love the three-story Glass Entryway, this is a key architectural detail of this building. This brings a lot of natural light into the lobby of the building. The HOA is currently reviewing bids to redo the courtyard, and next paint the building, so expect a few improvements coming to the building on the near horizon.
Turnover? 5% or about 2 condos a year on average
Almost all of the floorplans are a single story except for the penthouse level which several condos with lofts, and the lone 3bedroom condo, which was the developer’s unit in the building (#209). Floorplans 11-16 have views. Most of the condos are 1 bedrooms. The units have big balconies, gas fireplaces, big windows, walk-in closets in the master bedroom. Laundry can be installed in the condo. The original floorplan has a wet bar. These condos have a wonderful location. Electric stoves. Central HVAC.
One question I get asked is what’s up with the CL units? There are CL 1-7. CL stands for “Courtyard Level”- basically any CL unit is a first floor unit on the same level as the pool and courtyard.

Pool – there is a pool area. Hardly used. There was once a Spa, but the HOA removed it because owners with condos close to it complained about noise. You can see the empty pad where the spa use to be adjacent to the pool:
Rec Room- there is a rec room next to the upper parking garage. The HOA uses the rec room for meetings and storage, so it is not really used much by residents. You have to reserve it in advance and borrow the key.
Parking & Laundry
1 Bedroom condos get 1 space and 2 bedroom condos get 2 parking spaces. Parking is side by side. Sorry, No Guest parking. Owners may install extra storage in the garage with the HOA’s permission.
There is a community laundry room on each floor with two washers and two dryers, the HOA now allows in unit laundry to be installed in each unit.
Home Owners Association
I’d like to mention for HVAC work, or Chimney work, or for residential home inspections, the roof of the building has 2 access points. Both of those doors are locked with a 1-5 combo lock. THe Property management company or Janitor are the only companies with the code and you need to schedule an appointment in advance to get up there.
