The latest in a number of large new apartment buildings on West Hollywood’s Eastside has officially opened.

Trammell Crow Residential has announced the opening of Domain West Hollywood, a building with 166 apartments and over 9.000 feet of ground floor retail space. The building is located at 7141 Santa Monica Blvd. between North Formosa and North Detroit and adjacent to the Dylan, a 184-unit apartment building opened in 2014.

Among the other relatively new apartment buildings in the once-gritty area of the Eastside are the Huxley, with 187 units, which opened in 2014 on the southeast corner of Fountain and La Brea avenues; the Angelene, a 179-apartment building at La Brea and Willoughby, and Avalon West Hollywood, a 370-unit building on Santa Monica Boulevard at North Fuller Avenue.

The domain, trammel crow, west hollywood, apartments“We are delighted to introduce Domain as the newest addition to West Hollywood’s East Side,” said Garth Erdossy, senior managing director, TCR Southern California, in an announcement of the opening. “The neighborhood is steeped in the romance of Old Hollywood, which inspired us to create a lifestyle experience that evokes the glamour of the past, but with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Our goal was to be both local in context, and global in appeal.”

Erdossy called out the work of Studio One Eleven, architect for the project, and designer Jonathan Adler and artist Malika Favre. He also said that Yummy.com, a grocery delivery service, would be opening in the building’s retail space soon.

The Domain WeHo offers studios and one and two bedroom apartments in sizes ranging from 589 square feet up to 1,341 square feet While it is just announcing its opening, the Domain has been offering apartments for rent for many weeks. According to its website, only 66 of its 166 units currently are available.

The Domain’s rents are high compared to West Hollywood’s median rent of $1,940 for a one-bedroom apartment as calculated by ApartmentList.com. For example, the Domain website lists rents for available one-bedroom units from $2,799 for a 776 square foot unit to $4,390 for a 1,003 square foot unit.

Studio apartments are available at rents ranging $2,540 for a 690 square foot apartment and $4,385 for a 673 square foot unit with a balcony. Two bedroom rents range from $3,800 for a 1,042 square foot unit to $6,065 for a 1,229 square foot unit.

Those rents are in line with others at new apartment buildings. For example, according to Apartments.com, the Huxley (which doesn’t make public its available inventory or its rents) offers studio apartments with 681 square feet for $2,297 to $2,610, one bedrooms of 733 to 768 square feet for $2,633 to $3,026 and two bedrooms of 1,053 to 1,127 square feet for $4,949 to $5,174 a month.

OUTRAGEOUS RENTS. No one in their right mind will pay those rents to live on Santa Monica Blvd.. One can BUY real estate for LESS monthly payments!!!! Contact a Licensed REALTOR. They are everywhere!!! So is this building going to have the required 20% of the building for low income????? I bet they wiggle out of that somehow. It will not take too long before they will be forced to lower their rents. WeHo is losing its “village” appeal. Really disappointed.

The formulaic retail spaces at most of these new developments is not only aesthetically unattractive but lack any sense of community. The range of bland box venues speak nothing of a sense of place. Would you prefer one beautiful caisson cylinders or two? With brick and mortar stores on the wane, these opportunities seem attractive only to occasional corporate entities with the financial clout to poach potential customers from existing established businesses or uninformed tourists. The Fred Segal collaboration on Sunset and Nordstrom’s entree into Melrose Place would be good examples. Businesses on Robertson Blvd for the most part have… Read more »

Perhaps future Section 8 Housing on every corner.

The retail space on ground level doesn’t work. Parking is hard and not enough foot traffic.
Retail like Trader Joe’s works because it is Trader Joe’s. And, looking how dark all of these new buildings are at night, I don’t believe the occupancy figures,

Oh my. It looks like an office building.
The rents are ridiculous.

If rents seem crazy take a look at home prices. One used to be able to buy a small home for $500,000 somewhere in the city…, that now cost average $1,500,000 or more. Rents on the other hand are stabilized in many cases even thought the value of the lands and expenses are much higher. Market forces take over to subsidize some of the lower stabilized apartments. . But.. in NYC that same studio is $3000 or more. Its not only West Hollywood. Our city council is not at fault. Those who blame council members are very short sighted.. because… Read more »

Design Review is the first line of defense against inferior architecture. Members of the Planning Commission have first crack at the “curb appeal” aspect, if you will, then on to full commission. It would be illuminating if Weho’s numbers and statistics guy could review the votes of all projects passed in the last 15 years or so as well as the council votes. That number will most certainly have its own story to tell.

Big Donations to Both John Heilman And John Duran by this developer and the wonderful law firm, that’s got its money in all our elections, I’m sure had nothing to do with this mega project? We need term limits on planning commission as well. Its obvious who’s interests are front and center versus the long term residents quality of life

I guess it’s appropriate now to pull out the old cliche……”there goes the neighborhood”….

Wow! I agree these rents are insane. I make a very respectable 6 digit income and I can’t afford these rents. My fear is that my current WeHo apartment gets sold… then what?
I’d really like to know the occupancy rate of all these new city-block size buildings and who’s renting these units?

The 1970’s Mediterranean Village Apts on Larrabee for example, a place where many current long term residents have gone through (one way or another) offers 414 sf studios from $2,100…..720 sf one bedrooms from $2,600 and 1,100 sf two bedrooms from $3,500.

The difference between the two buildings is that the Domain units are brand spanking new and BIGGER……The building also includes sustainable inclusionary affordable housing where Mediterranean Village does not.

In terms of design, it’s “ugly-uniformed type housing” just like Kings Rd…..which is pretty nice.

This type of language merits the death penalty: ““The neighborhood is steeped in the romance of Old Hollywood, which inspired us to create a lifestyle experience that evokes the glamour of the past, but with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Our goal was to be both local in context, and global in appeal.” There is nothing inspired or old Hollywod about another piece of Dreck Architecture polluting the street.
