Ten years ago, the Sunset Strip in the West Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles was known for its nightlife and a hot spot for the paparazzi. But in recent years it has undergone a transformation and has become a real luxury enclave. Then, in June 2021, the opening of Pendry Residences West Hollywood by Montage Hotels & Resorts took the neighborhood to a whole new level.
The building, designed by Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, offers everything a high-end buyer could ever wish for and more. Born from a shared vision of true Angelenos, a mix of hotel and residences, a private club, culinary inspiration by Wolfgang Puck, this will be the vibrant meeting place West Hollywood deserves. With polished comfort, impeccable service and a fresh expression of luxury, Pendry West Hollywood and Pendry Residences West Hollywood by Montage Hotels & Resorts elevate the Sunset Strip to a new level of sophistication,” Tina Necrason, executive vice president of Montage’s residential division International tells me.
With units ranging from $3 million to $30 million, this $500 million dollar project was nearly fifteen years in the making. After all, perfection takes time. Encompassing an entire city block along the Sunset Strip, this legendary location has a rich history. The plot was originally the home of actor John Barrymore and then the location of the famous House of Blues nightclub.
Truly a new level of fully catered resort style living in Los Angeles, all homeowners have private entrances, stunning views and top-notch amenities.
This exclusive building has just 40 homes, including two- to three-bedroom floor plans from 2,000 square feet to over 4,500 square feet.
Mathew Chaney of Eyrc Architects tells me, “The architecture of Pendry Residences West Hollywood is unabashedly contemporary. The design concept was born with our intent to create superlative views and indoor-outdoor experiences with a priority for privacy. Not hindered by a nostalgic style, we are able to maximize the essential elements of lavish California living.”
Some properties even have expansive private outdoor spaces with terraces of up to 3400 square feet. These homes are designed to take full advantage of the city’s great weather with seamless transitions from indoor to private outdoor space. The Terrace Estates have private pools, hot tubs, and even outdoor kitchens.
Steven Ehrlich of Eyrc Architects explains, “Contemporary architecture captures the energy of Sunset Boulevard and offers superlative views of Los Angeles.” From the Hollywood Hills to Beverly Hills and all the way to downtown Los Angeles, these homes have some of the best views money can buy.
The interior was designed by AD100 designer Martin Brudnizki of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. The custom-designed open-concept kitchens feature beautifully selected materials, including Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, as well as split-sawn white oak custom-stained cabinetry. The oversized Calacata Borghini marble islands and Waterworks fixtures are ideal for home cooks and anyone who enjoys fine design.
The spacious bathrooms are finished in cut Arabescato Cervaiole marble. looks like something you would expect from a five star hotel. Even the smallest details were carefully thought out. An example of this is that the master baths have custom double sinks with seamlessly integrated sinks. Custom millwork and polished nickel fixtures from Waterworks are the ultimate finishing touch.
Essential to any Angelino, the cabinets are another notable feature. With beautiful wooden shelves, there is plenty of room to hang everything from suits to casual wear and red carpet dresses. In addition to shoe racks and shelves for accessories such as handbags, there is also a center island and custom lighting both under the cabinets and in the ceiling.
Pendry residents have access to a rooftop pool, wine tasting room, garden patio, fitness center, social gathering space, lounge and more.
In addition, homeowners receive a one-year membership to The Britely and can use all hotel amenities, including a 24-hour gym, spa and several restaurants.
