LOHA DESIGNS MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT IN WEST HOLLYWOOD FOUR-STORY30-UNIT BUILDING TO RISE ON KINGS ROAD.
Los Angeles-based architecture firm LOHA has unveiled renderings for a multifamily residential complex in West Hollywood.
The project, now rising at 1030 N. Kings Road, will consist of a four-story building featuring 30 apartments above one level of underground parking.
LOHA describes the building as featuring amenity spaces at multiple levels. A double-height space between the third and fourth floors provides space for a gym, a roof deck and seating areas. At the building’s exterior, plans call for a combination of fluted metal and flush panels.
A similar residential-retail complex was recently completed just north at the corner of Kings Road and Santa Monica Boulevard.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEWEST LOHA-DESIGNED WEST HOLLYWOOD CONDO PROJECTNOT A BAD-LOOKING PLACE
New renderings for a 30-unit condo project on Kings Road in West Hollywood have popped up on the website for Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, which designed the under-construction project. The complex had previously been reported as an apartment project, but a representative from developer National Construction tells Curbed it is now a condo project.
The images show the four-story 41,500-square-foot complex’s dynamic facade, a mix of perforated metal panel and wood cladding that jut out to create balconies and also keep the building from looking bulky.
When complete, the project will have a double-height entry-level courtyard, a “communal atrium,” and an amenity area with a gym and roof deck spanning parts of the third and fourth floors. It will also feature underground parking.
A rep with LOHA tells Curbed the project is likely to wrap up by late 2018.

It will have 30 condo units, including two for low-income people and three for moderate-income people, and 58 parking spaces in an underground garage. It is replacing two single-family homes on adjacent lots.
The Planning Commission endorsed the project in a five-to-two vote, with then-commissioners Sheila Lightfoot and Heidi Shink voting against it. The images originally were published in The Architects Newspaper, a trade journal.
