Habitat 15 @ 1322 Detroit Avenue, West Hollywood Area

Habitat 15 at 1322 Detroit Avenue is an excellent addition to the east part of the West Hollywood area. What's great about this neighborhood is you can walk to stores (Target) and some of the best restaurants and bars old (Formosa Cafe), classic (Jones) and new (Crown Bar). And all the action of Hollywood is only steps away.

This funky 15-unit building has some imaginative architecture courtesy of Predock_Frane Architects. All units have 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths (except for one 3.5 bath unit). Prices range from $599,000 - $849,000. Unit size ranges from 1,207 sq ft to 2,013 sq ft.
Residences are two- and three-level. Ten of the units are accessed from the third floor; the remaining five lower units are accessed from the first floor.
Model unit #12 is a three-level, front-facing unit, with entry on the 3rd floor to kitchen/living area.
Appliances are stainless steel and are Jenn Air and Kitchen Aid.  Countertops are Caesarstone.
The fourth floor bedroom has incredible western views of the Sunset Strip - Hollywood Hills from the large picture window.
Baths have Toto toilets, Hansgrohe plumbing fixtures, and Duravit porcelain sinks.
The second bedroom is on the second floor.
On the second floor there's also a den/office area.
Model Unit #6 is also accessed on the 3rd floor. The fourth floor has a bedroom that is east-facing.
The bedroom also has a small balcony.
The unit has an open plan and skylights.

HOA for two units advertised is a low $299.  Parking is side-by-side.  This is an impressive project that offers quality and value and some really cool design.
