El Centro Apartments in Los Angeles CA brings daring new life to grand old Hollywood. Established as a self-contained neighborhood on a full city block east of Hollywood and Vine, El Centro is a dynamic residential development comprised of four distinctive buildings. The property offers apartments, penthouses, and bungalows with a rich suite of amenities and services.
Outstanding interiors by award-winning Los Angeles-based Commune Design include huge windows, chef-inspired kitchens, all major appliances, and well-chosen finishes. Most residences include walk-in closets and outdoor living spaces.
The bungalows, a unique El Centro offering, occupy select garden and poolside settings. Set in lush tropical landscaping around the pool deck and garden courtyards, these Hollywood residences feature El Centro’s full suite of interior amenities as well as open-air verandas detailed with custom-milled cedar siding and art glass lighting fixtures.
LIGHT, AIRY, WELL DESIGNED INTERIORS
The interiors at El Centro’s Hollywood apartments feature the kind of wall-to-wall upgrades usually reserved for fine homebuilding. Throughout the property, all apartments include natural oak hardwood flooring, expansive windows (often floor-to-ceiling), high-style light fixtures, Nest thermostats for A/C and heating control, washer and dryer, brushed bronze plumbing fixtures, and high ceilings—up to an unbelievable 19 feet in the 2-story penthouses.
CUSTOM KITCHENS & BATHROOMS
El Centro’s kitchens include dishwasher, built-in microwave, custom cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, and full wall ceramic tile backsplashes.
Bathrooms have ceramic hex tile floors, spacious glass-enclosed shower rooms, and brushed bronze plumbing fixtures.
DAILY-USE BOTANICAL THERAPY
Inspired by Southern California’s historic botanical gardens, El Centro’s garden installations in the Paseo, poolside, and residential courtyards include a remarkable collection of specimen plants from around the globe—like Mexico, Italy, Hawaii and Indonesia.
These luxury apartments in Hollywood offer a sparkling saltwater pool that is framed by tropical gardens and bleacher seating for sun worshippers. Smaller groups get together at the hot tub, fire pit, barbeque grill, and the 90-inch television for immersive event viewing.
LOUNGE, FULLY-EQUIPPED GYM AND SPA
The Sunroom at El Centro Hollywood Apartments is a clubhouse perfect for lounging with friends. It multiplies the private living space of your apartment with a communal indoor/outdoor space for entertaining. The space comes equipped with a chef’s kitchen for residents’ use (also suitable for catering), and a fireplace—because even Hollywood gets chilly in February.
Residents of these luxury Hollywood apartments can slow down (or speed up) at the state-of-the-art gym and sauna, equipped with a sunny yoga studio and large lockers. The Lobby is where people cross paths on the way to and from the Paseo, the private parking decks, bike storage, and rideshare pick-up. Designed with elements of the boutique hotel and the urban oasis in mind, the Lobby is equally adaptable for informal meetings or just hanging out.
LUSH GROVES AND FIRE PITS
For the desert, tropical and subtropical gardens, Cactus Store brought a wide diversity of plant life to El Centro Apartments and a sense of privacy to the courtyards. In addition to the 20 different species of cycads, there are dancing fire pits to experience, enhancing evening conversations.
