The scaffolding has come off The Brownstone Lofts in Angeleno Heights as crews prepare to complete the 55-unit project this summer, with prices started at $375,000. Inside the renovated 1920s brick building, there’s already a model condo to show off hardwood and marble floors, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Roof top decks provide views of downtown skyscrapers and the hills of Echo Park. But perhaps the the most interesting feature being touted by the owner is the building’s rumored connection to Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra:
used to stay and play! OWN YOUR PIECE OF HOLLYWOOD HISTORY!!!”
The owner “was told that,” Radkovich said. “It’s the lore around the neighborhood.” Radkovich, however, said she knows that the late actor Anthony Quinn once lived on the third floor.
Whether its the story of Frank and Marilyn or the exposed brick walls, The Brownstowne is certainly drawing a lot of attention from prospective buyers, Radkovich said. About a dozen people have put down deposits – $5,000 but the amount is flexible – to reserve a unit, she said.
