1200 N Sweetzer Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90069

Asking price: Not announced
Number of units in development: +/- 11 (?)
Days on Market: Coming some time soon

A boxy condo block painted brown and chartreuse has arisen where two small bungalows were once located at the corners of Sweetzer and Norton Avenues.

Not a lot of information is available about the project. The land was originally listed at $2,700,000 and sold for $2,200,000 in November 2005.

Three and one-half years later the condo project has arrived, in times as depressed as they were heady back in ’05.

The building has potential. The upper floors will have excellent, unobstructed views. The doors and windows are snazzy and modern. The building is sited nicely at a corner. The units are steps away from restaurants and retail.

The brown and chartreuse exterior is strange – something between “New Wave” and West Elm – that could risk looking drab after a few years sun and rain.

Prices have not been announced.

Bottom line: this dense West Hollywood neighborhood – which appeals to newcomers and long-time Angelenos alike – gets an upscale new arrival.
