WeHo celebrates groundbreaking at 1250 Fairfax
The team behind 1250 Fairfax joined with West Hollywood leaders last week for a groundbreaking that kicks off construction of a 53-unit apartment building on Fairfax Avenue, just south of Fountain Avenue. Approved unanimously by the West Hollywood Planning Commission, the residential project includes 12 affordable units for low and moderate-income residents.
The five-story development, slated for completion in 2020, will transform a long-dormant site with residences located within four buildings connected by a network of open bridges and walkways, and organized around a central cluster of semi-public courtyards. The contemporary take on the traditional courtyard style was designed by award-winning Culver City based OFFICEUNTITLED (formerly R&A Architecture + Design) and includes intimate nooks for dining and entertaining. It was inspired by the works of famed Southern California architect Irving Gill.
