901 Hancock - Exterior ViewUpdated 4/26/10 -- 15 units are available - see a complete profile of the building with interior and exterior views

One of the most exciting condo developments in West Hollywood is emerging from its scaffolding and is sure to cause a stir with the buying public – the Hancock Lofts – at the corner of Hancock Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard.

Hancock Lofts, West Hollywood - InteriorDeveloped by the CIM Group of Los Angeles, and designed by the Koning Eizenberg Architecture of Santa Monica (that designed The Biscuit Lofts downtown, among many other projects), these 31 units are nicely integrated into the urban fabric of this central West Hollywood locale.

The building’s one- and two-bedroom units range in size from 1,000 – 1,800 sq ft. Seven affordable rental units and three retail spaces are built into street level. Tender Greens of Culver City occupies one of the retail spaces. And the food is amazing.

Hancock Lofts - West Hollywood - BalconyThe building is an appealing amalgam of metal, glass and steel, and has a snazzy rooftop pool. The luxurious units are outfitted with Miele and Jenn-Air appliances and other high-end touches including “expansive, anodized aluminum windows with clear, dual-glazed, low-e glass” and “European walnut cabinetry with concealed, self-closing hinges, adjustable shelf supports and drawer slides” (sure to be a major attraction!)

Throw in central AC and a couple of walk-in closets, and you’ve got contemporary, pampered living at its best.

Hancock Lofts - ViewIn the past few years, West Hollywood has finally gained some contemporary residential buildings of architectural significance. The Hancock Lofts characterizes this “new” West Hollywood and should engender strong buyer interest. Sold by Lee Homes.
