A peak into The Brownstone Lofts in Angeleno Heights over the weekend found agents guiding potential buyers through unfinished units, some with impressive views of downtown – as well as the Hollywood Freeway. But the exposed brick walls inside the condos, including the third-floor, $884,000 unit shown above, have also attracted a lot of attention, said agent Johnny Nekuda. “The more exposed brick, the more the people seem to like [the unit],” he said.
Most of work on The Brownstone, which claims a connection to Hollywood history but was also apparently the site of a grisly 1920s murder, is scheduled to be completed by year’s end, though the elevators have yet to be installed and many hallways and interior spaces have yet to be finished. So far, 14 potential buyers have placed deposits of up to $5,000 to hold a unit as they seek financing, said one agent.
