Declared “sensational design” by Commissioner John Altschul
at the West Hollywood Design Review meeting, the 8497 Sunset Boulevard project
is continued. The design review committee also admired the usage of the site, which is situated on the north side of Sunset Boulevard.
The building will be iconic on the Los Angeles landscape, greeting drivers as they drive up La Cienega to enter onto the famous boulevard.
With the city’s approval, the Hodgetts+Fung team will move forward with what local journalist James Mills called an “ultra-modern and futuristic” design.
