Real Estate Roundup
A 5-bedroom, approximately 4,000 square-foot Victorian is up for sale for $1.69 million. The Queen Anne-style home on Carroll Avenue — known for its restored Victorian-era mansions — built in 1895 is Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #189. The home was designed by architect Joseph Cather Newsom, who along with his brother, Samuel, designed elaborate homes in the Victorian and other period styles in Southern and Northern California.
The space vacated by Blue Bottle Coffee is up for rent at nearly $13,000 a month, according to a listing on Loopnet. The 2,734-square-foot first-floor retail space in the historic Jensen’s Recreation Center is listed at $57 per square foot per year. But terms are negotiable. The Sunset Boulevard coffee shop was in business for only three years before closing last November.
Construction has begun on 30 small-lot homes at 3022 N. Coolidge Street, Urbanize reported. Renderings for the development, known as Coolidge Place, show contemporary three-story buildings, ranging from 1,468- to 1,677- square-feet. Each has two bedrooms and private balconies. They are designed by local architecture firm Modative, and expected to sell starting in the low $800,000s.
The Roberts Apartments complex on Griffith Park Boulevard has been nominated as a historic landmark “as an excellent example of a Mid-Century Modern multi-family apartment building,” according to the Planning Department’s recommendation report. The report noted the building’s cubic window patterns, the use of materials and the simplified exterior. The nine-unit apartment block was designed in 1965 by local architect Allyn E. Morris, who had worked for Lloyd Wright, Risley and Gould, and Daniel, Mann, Johnson, and Mendenhall before starting his own practice. According to the nomination application, he was eventually recognized by the Los Angeles architecture community “for his sculptural, cubic aesthetic, and cost-effective designs.” The Cultural Heritage Commission will take up the nomination at their meeting on Thursday.
