The new Pendry Hotel + Residences is a 300,000 sf development along the iconic Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. The project will consist of 149 luxury guestrooms as well as 40 private residences and a 7 story subterranean parking garage.
The 11-story tall boutique hotel includes 6,000 sf of digital signage woven into the façade and 25,000 sf of retail/food and beverage space. Together with the separate condominium building, the complex extends a full city block and drops 40’ in elevation from one end to the other. By stepping the building height, the hotel and each condo have sweeping vistas of the city.
The hotel and condo buildings frame the main entrance piazza, an animated outdoor volume. The piazza extends into communal spaces including four restaurants and a private club, culminating in amenity-laden rooftops with pools and landscaping.
Every Pendry Residence flows from one side of the building through to the other, allowing spectacular views in two directions and natural ventilation. Unencumbered by a nostalgic style, the design maximizes the essential elements of lush California living in a dense, urban environment.
