W Hollywood Residences
6250 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles CA 90028
The W Hollywood is a 15 story modern luxury high-rise condominium, built in 2009, located at the epicenter of re-invigorated downtown Hollywood. The building exterior was designed by HKS architects in a contemporary and modern style. W Hollywood is another example of a growing trend of combining luxury condos and high-end hotels. (check out the Ritz Carlton Residences Downtown, sunset millennium tower). There are 143 condos and 305 hotel rooms housed in two separate buildings. The W is for grown-ups, it’s happening. It’s cool.
Having a hotel onsite gives W Hollywood Residences unprecedented amenities not available in ordinary condominium buildings. Can someone say- room service? Or how about a 24/7 concierge? Or an onsite spa, restaurant, bar, nightclub and The Best Rooftop Pool in Hollywood.
Everything inside the W is new and shiny. The building was built with modern construction techniques so the walls are completely soundproof, windows are double pane and energy efficient, and the plumbing is all new. Condos have humongous walk-in-closets, that you just don’t get with older buildings.
In addition to its luxurious amenities, this hotel/condo type of set up tends to keep the property constantly abuzz with excitement and activity. There is a constant flow of residents, hotel guests, tourists, travelers, tenants, commuters, diners, going outers, entertainers, and parties- so you will never be bored, and you don’t have to leave home to socialize! You live where all the action is happening.
It is not uncommon for a visitor to stay at the Hotel, and like it so much that they buy a condo. A lot of owners are bi-coastal, splitting their time equally between New York and Los Angeles.
Residing at the world-famous intersection of Hollywood & Vine, the W Hollywood Residences are surrounded by many of LA’s most iconic landmarks: The Hollywood Sign, Griffith Park Observatory, The Walk of Fame, Grumman’s Chinese Theater, the Capital Records Building, and the Cinerama Dome. Some could argue that the W is now a landmark.
Directly to the South of the W Hollywood is an upscale Apartment Community – 1600 N Vine. The historic beaux-arts Taft office building, with a Starbucks at ground level is to the East. Vintage Los Angeles condos the Broadway and Lofts at Hollywood and Vine are nearby neighbors. Trader Joes is a block away at the corner of Vine and Selma. There are a ton of café’s, restaurants, bars, and retail smattered within walking distance. However, you will never need to leave site, because the W has a restaurant, bar, and club all on site. But you don’t have to look any father- the W Hollywood has many great places to go on site. The W Hotel has a restraint- Delphine Eatery & Bar- the Living Room is really cool, and Drai’s rooftop pool nightclub.
The nightlife of Hollywood is legendary- Hollywood Blvd has many of Los Angeles most popular clubs.
Arclight theater is great place to watch a movie.
There is a Metro Red Line stop at the W- which is one of the rare forms of public transportation in LA. It’s just a ten minute ride to downtown.
This is even a hot spot for theater and performances- with the Kodak Theater and Pantages Theater. Ameoba Records, the Palladium, Ford Theater. You could go out and do a different thing every night for a year.
Price Range for 1Br and 2Br $600,000 -$1,500,00
You can spend a lot of time talking about all the great amenities the W Hollywood has, or all the cool places there are to go out in the neighborhood, but the high end custom home finishes in the condos are nice for when you just feel like hanging out at home.
Kitchens have European style cabinets from popular Italian company Poliform. Counters are Ceasar stone quartz counters, and the sinks and cabinets have designer fixtures and hardware. The kitchens have top of the line appliances. There is a subzero fridge, and Kupperbusch oven in each kitchen. Every Kitchen has an 84 bottle wine cooler and dishwasher.
There is rich coconut palm wood Flooring in every condo. The Natural wood warms up the condos, which can sometimes feel cold in contemporary designs with exposed concrete or terrazzo flooring.
These condos are all a good size. The Smallest Condos are 900sqft, and the largest 2BRs are 2,600sqft. The penthouses on the 14th and 15th level are substantially larger, reaching 3,600 sqft.
The master bedroom has good dimensions and have a large window. The Master bathrooms are very large, and have a double vanity, separate soaking tub, and frameless shower. Flooring in the bathrooms is Brazilian Limestone.
The closets are humongous, and come finished out with Poliform organizer system.
One of the features of the condos I really like is the huge 200-300 sqft Terraces that make the absolute most of outdoor space. You don’t get these huge terraces with older condo conversion buildings because they just weren’t built that way. Since the building is a high rise there are beautiful views. The best views are North, and West.
The W Hollywood condos are not lofts; they have bedrooms with a wall and door like a traditional layout. The Kitchen, Dining, and Living Room are all open in one large room. Each Bedroom has its own private bathroom. The Master closet is a huge walk-in. One of the biggest closets you can get in a condo in the city.
