8899

8899 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood

THE DETAILS: West Hollywood’s art and design district showpiece, 8899, is a curated collection of 38 tower residences and eight custom homes—with design by Olson Kundig Architects. Units boast unobstructed views of Beverly Hills and the greater L.A. area through full-height Vitrosca glass walls formed into 11-to-14-foot ceilings. Wide open space is the motto for this luxurious residential tower featuring a 2,300-square-foot fitness center, a 36-foot-long swimming pool, elite auto stables and a private outdoor dining area. French white oak, Italian travertine flooring and signature leather-wrapped door handles create a warm, intricate oasis for the R&R-obsessed Angeleno, but a trip to the on-site Italian restaurant Stella by restaurateur Janet Zuccarini (Felix Trattoria) is reason alone to head downstairs.
