1540 North Vine
The 1540 North Vine mixed-use high-rise, designed by Thomas Cox Architects, will provide a highly desirable revitalizing boost to this urban community. Located within a block of an MTA Red Line station and a major bus depot, this transit-oriented 11-story structure will accommodate 306 market rate apartment units over 67,500 s.f. of retail space at ground level and two levels of subterranean garages with 800 parking spaces.
While trying to maintain a contemporary ambience, the developers sought to create a classic Hollywood feel through the building’s architecture and signage. Architectural firm Thomas P. Cox: Architects, Inc. modeled the building’s design after local landmarks like the Roosevelt Hotel. Adding to 1540’s sense of history, the building site is located along the Hollywood Walk of Fame and will feature sunken relief sculptures along the building’s base depicting the filming of “The Squaw Man.”
