The eggersmann LA team was thrilled to be a part of one residential unit in the admirable remastering project of the historic West Hollywood mid-century building, 8899 Beverly Blvd. Designed by modernist architect, Richard Dorman, and completed in 1964 as the original Los Angeles International Design Center, it remains an exceptional classic example of mid-century modern edifices.
The iconic building overlooks the Pacific Design Center and has a rich past in the community. In fact, most WeHo residents for decades referred to it as the ICM Building from its days of housing ICM Partners, the talent and literary agency. Following ICM’s departure, it became the original location for celebrity favorite eatery, Madeo Ristorante.
Years in the making, 8899 Beverly Blvd is the first and only residential building in the West Hollywood Arts and Design District. The mid-rise building and adjacent retail shopping center were transformed into 40 condo units with 2 penthouses, 15 moderate- to low-income apartments, and 8 2-story single family residences, each with its own unique design and appearance. Re-conceived by global architectural firm, Olson Kundig, the community-minded complex features many luxury amenities and ground floor retail spaces.
With the owner’s goal of adding value to the exceptional and very unique WeHo residence, the team custom fitted the master bedroom and wardrobe, guest bedroom closets, home theater, living room, and office with innovative storage, display, and modern living solutions.
The design team included James McCabe of eggersmann LA and Brett Oppenheim, top Hollywood realtor, founder of The Oppenheim Group and Oppenheim Real Estate, and former subject of the Netflix Original Series, Selling Sunset.
In fact, the current Selling Sunset host and Brett’s twin, Jason Oppenheim, lives in the newly designed luxury residence in West Hollywood.
