Hollywood + Cahuenga
1708-1732 North Cahuenga Boulevard is a new Class A speculative office building in the Hollywood Boulevard Commercial and Entertainment District.
The 14-story building’s approximately 30,000 square foot floor plates with a central core are envisioned for commercial media and tech-focused tenants. At the ground level, 4,500 square feet of retail enjoys a prominent location at the corner of Cahuenga and Hollywood Boulevard, while five floors of below grade parking provides 547 spaces.
The new building bridges the scale between the larger commercial structures a block to the east and its smaller historic neighbors, especially the adjacent terra-cotta clad Security Trust & Savings building (1920). The bold geometry of the new building complements its historic neighbor by taking massing and materials cues from the finely detailed structure; a large tenant terrace on the 7th floor continues and enhances the cornice line of the Security Trust & Savings building, while the dignified, but restrained, façade of neutral colored glass, ceramic frit and matching grey metal is softened by eased corners as a nod to the radiussed arches of its neighbor.
An open panel roof sign evokes the glamour and drama of the surrounding district and embeds the new building within its context. The non-street facing side of the sign features a large viewing screen, creating an outdoor theater for tenants within a larger landscaped outdoor amenity deck. The outdoor space is coupled with 4,500 square feet of interior tenant amenities.
