Originally built in 1938 as the home of CBS, California’s 4.7-acre Columbia Square featured a tapestry of recording studios and theaters that bolstered the Golden Age of Hollywood. The area was abandoned about a decade ago as studios moved to the valley, but the historic site is now being revitalized. In addition to a wealth of new companies and shops, Columbia Square now includes Hollywood Proper Residences, with 200 suites for long-term rentals instead of typical guest suites.
Designed by Kelly Wearstler, the residences—which overlook downtown Los Angeles, the Griffith Observatory, and the Hollywood Sign—range from 753 square feet to 2,582 square feet. One- and two-bedroom options are available, as well as four penthouses (two of which feature private plunge pools). Seamlessly melding the living room, kitchen, and dining room into a singular open-air space, the units are decorated in muted shades of cream and tan.
Monthly rates start at $3,500 for unfurnished units and $7,000 for furnished units, while penthouses begin at $22,500 per month. Leasing starts this month, and residences will be available for move-in this June. While there, guests can take advantage of five-star amenities, such as a rooftop pool with cabanas, a fitness center, and an outdoor yoga patio.
