Columbia Square Tower is a 20-story, 300,000 sq. foot mixed-use building consisting of 200 luxury apartment units, with a porte cochere and lower adjacent structure that will showcase retail and residential amenities. The tower is sited to take advantage of the views of the landmark buildings of Hollywood, distant views to the coast and downtown LA towers, the famous “Hollywood” sign and Hollywood hills.
Featuring large apartment units (1,000 sq. foot avg.) and amenity spaces—roof terraces, lap pool, fitness area, café/lounge—the project is designed to accommodate global travelers; discerning neighborhood residents in need of a home while their primary residence is under renovation; or working professionals who wish to be to the entertainment studios located within the neighborhood.
The tower is part of the Columbia Square redevelopment, which includes renovation of three historic CBS Studio structures on Sunset Boulevard; 30,000 sq. feet of retail; 435,000 sq. feet of office space; and four and a half levels of underground parking with dedicated residential spaces serviced by a valet parking service.
GBD serves as the Residential (Associate) Architect for the project; contracted with House & Robertson Architects (Executive Architect), who is leading the overall team of: Rios Clementi Hale Studios (Design Architects), The Kor Group (Operator), and Kelly Wearstler (the Interior Designer).
Construction broke ground in November 2014; the team anticipates completion in April 2016.
