If you haven’t noticed, there are some cool things happening in Century City. It was quite the construction zone along little Santa Monica Blvd for a bit, but that has definitely changed. Not only is the revamp of the Century City Mall starting to look good, but Luxury Apartment Building Ten Thousand is now complete.
At the corner of Moreno and Santa Monica, sits this 40 story residential tower in a prime area of Los Angeles, bordering Beverly Hills. The Property Lab owner Yvonne Arias recently took a second visit of the property and what a difference! The building is now complete and with nearly 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. She was more and more impressed with each amenity she saw. From the 1 acre outdoor park, to the indoor lap pool to the oversized fitness center, builder Crescent Heights didn’t miss a beat. You will surely get what you are paying for here.
Our most fave feature was learning that Jacob Hashimoto designed the entry art piece right behind the concierge desk (see featured photo). Just gave us more to love at this place! We’ve already secured one of our best clients here and we will surely bring more. Prices range from $9000-$25,000 per month offering 2 & 3 bedroom residences. #ContactTheLab.
Figueroa Avenue in the South Park area of Los Angeles is a happening construction zone! Cranes are in full force and we have updates on one of the projects at 12th & Figueroa in case you’re curious. Across the street from LA Live, home to the highly popular Ritz-Carlton Residences Los Angeles, is this new luxury project called Circa. Unlike it’s neighbor The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Circa’s two, 35 story towers will only be luxury rentals and there will be plenty of them. Circa is intending to offer a whopping 648 luxury apartments to the South Park neighborhood. Not only that, they plan to have ground level space for 3 restaurants and 4 retail stores. Anticipated rental pricing will be $3000-$20,000 per month and the square footage will range from 700 to 3800 square feet. Move ins are planned for early 2018.
Very recently, the TPL team took another trip to The Ambassador Gardens project in Pasadena. If you recall, we fell in love with the two-story townhouse model in early 2016, so we had to go back and see what the latest activity was. It seems they ended up selling that model home, not a shocker, and they only have about 4 condos left. The builder, Insignia City Ventures, did a great job with these luxury condos near the popular Old Town Pasadena area and their lowest price starts just under $2M.
The Ambassador Gardens also has ETCO Homes building a phase of their own starting in the low $2M range. They also have a historic home on this property at over 17,000 square feet asking $7,900,000 (pictured). Built in 1905, it has 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. As you know, we have given this luxury community a major thumbs up. Contact us if you’d like more information. Happy Holidays everyone!
We are oh so curious about the $1 billion dollar Oceanwide Plaza project on Figueroa in South Park, Downtown Los Angeles. Those cranes have been going strong and last we heard, it would be a mixed use complex like LA Live with a hotel branded by Roberto Cavalli.
Many thought that was an interesting brand choice and seems the powers-that-be ended up thinking the same. Cavalli has since been scrapped and for about a year now it’s been a mystery what the new hotel would be. Well, wait no more. We’ve recently learned the Oceanwide Plaza project will be 504 condos and retail attached to a Park Hyatt hotel.
Now, if you’re like us, we aren’t too familiar with this hotel chain. In fact, there are only 6 of these hotels worldwide and it’s the 5-Star branch of Hyatt. Their chief says they have been very selective in choosing their new location and they feel South Park is a great fit. Apparently, they had tried the hotel in Century City and it is now the Intercontinental.
Anyhow, looks like the project is coming along and some of its starry features will include a 2 acre outdoor space, an open air galleria and a 700 Foot Exterior LED Ribbon. Sounds very Vegas-esque. Set to debut in early 2019, should be a nice addition to the booming South Park neighborhood & a great location across the street from Staples Center, The Ritz-Carlton & LA Live. Be sure to stay in touch with The Property Lab for sales updates.

Right now, we’re focused on it’s newest delve into Downtown Los Angeles and that’s Cleo. We wouldn’t normally talk about a restaurant as we are focused on residential luxury real estate, but since it’s at L.A. Live, it’ll be The Property Lab’s neighbor, so we wanted to give it some attention.
This will be Cleo’s second location, as it began at The Redbury Hotel in Hollywood, very near TPL’s other popular place of business–The W Residences Hollywood. Cleo’s Chef Danny Elmaleh has won some awards we hear for Cleo so we can’t wait to try it. The restaurant is now open and serving breakfast, lunch & dinner that includes Mediterranean inspired eats like kebabs, flatbreads & a mezze bar with a glamorous twist. And we hear Cleo’s doing so well, there are plans to expand worldwide. You go, Cleo.
In Downtown Los Angeles, the First Tower of one of South Park’s most anticipated projects is about 75% sold. The Metropolis, developed by Chinese developer Greenland, is really coming along and it just topped off it’s Tower Two a few days ago on 9/30.
The amenities continue to look impressive with plans for large green spaces, dog parks, steam rooms & more. It seems the monthly HOA dues are relatively low considering what it looks like you’ll be getting. The pricing starts in the $600K range for studios & if you’re looking to move in 2016, there are still a few condos left in the first tower set for completion by December. Contact the Lab at Info@ThePropertyLabRE.com for more information. We have our eye on a few special units here…
In her work in the Malibu area, TPL owner Yvonne Arias has never come across a new luxury condo project that starts under $1M. So when she came across The Cavalleri Malibu that starts at $998,000 for a 2 bedroom at nearly 1600 square feet, she definitely wanted to share with her clients.
Built by San Francisco based developer Pacific Eagle, these 2 & 3 Bedroom Condos (there are also Penthouses) not only start at a reasonable price in comparison to other popular real estate in the area, but the property looks pretty great. It’s in the Point Dume area so you have a great beach nearby & some of the amenities include a pool, fitness center, fireplace lounge area, on site tennis, yoga & more. HOA dues also seem very reasonable starting around $1000.
If you’ve been thinking about a move to the ocean whether it be a main home or a vacation property, definitely contact Yvonne Arias for more information, more photos, etc. Don’t miss out as these prices aren’t seen too often, especially for an area like Malibu. Contact the Lab at Info@ThePropertyLabRE.com or 310-294-6838.

To refresh, these luxury apartments are located in Los Angeles on Santa Monica Blvd right next door to the Century City Mall, currently in heavy makeover mode, and Beverly Hills is also a neighbor. What a great location and it’s no wonder people seem to be lining up to view this gorgeous new high rise that will open November 1st, 2016. Some of the stellar amenities include an indoor lap pool (pictured). Prices have been set at $9600-$25,000 and there are 2 & 3 Bedroom Homes; sorry no 1 Bedders.

The anticipated 8500 Sunset Blvd project in West Hollywood will be launching soon and we can’t wait!
Plans to announce pricing were originally set for this past July, but a lag in city approvals has caused a delay. Not too shocking considering these types of delays are to be excepted so we’re hoping the new price release date of winter 2016 will be on point. As for actual sales of the condos, that should begin in the first quarter of 2017 as we’ve been told.
Located at the corner of La Cienega Blvd & Sunset Blvd, this is prime real estate within short walking distance to the popular Mondrian Hotel that is home to the famous Sky Bar and just to the west is the popular Sunset Plaza with plenty of shops, restaurants & retail.
Buyers will have the opportunity to purchase studios, 1 & 2 bedrooms & there will also be duplex style condos hat will surely be spectacular. We hear the south views will be the most stunning as you’ll see Downtown Los Angeles all the way to Century City. The north views will likely be pretty great too with views of the Hollywood Hills. Be sure to stay in touch with The Property Lab for more information & to get on our priority list.
