LOS ANGELES, March 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Silver Creek Development in partnership with MiamiArchitecture and design firm Arquitectonica today unveiled a newly updated design for 8850 Sunset Boulevard, a mixed-use development on the Sunset Strip in the United States City of West HollywoodStart of construction is planned for 2023.
Project 8850 Sunset is designed to further revitalize the Sunset Strip while paying tribute to its rich heritage of bars, retail space, a five-star luxury hotel and residences. Building on the unique history of the local area, the development will feature a reimagined Viper Room by the Rockwell Group. The Viper Room will feature a redesigned public entrance that references the design of the iconic space, as well as a new music venue and recording studio that will also pay tribute to the history, authenticity and soul of the popular nightclub in a new contemporary setting.
“We are excited to bring forth this outstanding mixed-use project that combines an unparalleled level of luxury and attention to detail with a historic location on the iconic Sunset Strip. The project is a complimentary offering to the Strip and will include a five-star luxury hotel to make 8850 Sunset a premier destination in the heart of West Hollywood,” called Karl EssigManaging Director at Silver Creek Development.
Since Silver Creek originally proposed a redevelopment of the 8850 Sunset site in 2018, it has worked closely with the community and made significant public contributions to the project. Working with architectural firm Arquitectonica, the newly announced design responds to this feedback and aims to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape West Hollywood, by integrating sustainable public and private green spaces into the contemporary vision. Arquitectonica focuses on ecologically sensitive but economically viable design and is widely recognized for its ability to create unique forms of memorable images in close harmony with the environment, making them an ideal partner for the revitalization of this area.
The residential part of the design includes 26 standard condominiums and 8 affordable residential units as well as state-of-the-art residential facilities. With the spirit of neighborhood in mind, the pedestrian zone is celebrated with the introduction of a horizontal architectural feature that emphasizes the street-level experience and enriches the public space. Alfresco dining and leisure terraces with green spaces are complemented by the unique panoramic views, surrounding hills and activity of the Sunset Strip.
“The design is defined by a series of thin horizontal planes that fade into the sky. These architectural horizon lines rise from a base of ever-changing, dynamic perforated bronze panels that anchor the building to the ground. It’s the story of the earth and the endless Pacific horizon,” he said Bernardo Fort BresciaCo-founder of Arquitectonica.
8850 Sunset is the latest in the transformative development of the iconic Sunset Strip, which has expanded in recent years with a number of new developments and mixed-use buildings.
The customized form of the building, which will encompass approximately 237,234 enclosed square feet and 12 stories, maximizes breathtaking views, light and open space connections that reflect the local environment and surrounding skyline. At street level, a two-story podium containing cafes, public spaces, the Viper Room entrance and shops reflects the scale and granularity of traditional storefronts along Sunset Boulevard, creating a site-specific dialogue between the new development and the surrounding area. Floors two through five will be dedicated to the five-star luxury hotel that will take up residence at the project’s premiere, and the associated residences will occupy floors six through ten. Large Juliet balconies will contrast with the facade of the hotel and residences, with outdoor and leisure terraces integrated throughout. An open plan residential rooftop and pool combine with the hotel’s Presidential Suite and rooftop amenities to create an unrivaled top-level destination for the public with panoramic city, hill and ocean views. The tenth floor features a restaurant and bar with an alfresco dining terrace and events space that will serve as a vibrant new alfresco dining and social space on the Sunset Strip.
The design aims to achieve a LEED Gold standard, which includes passive and active strategies to reduce water and energy use and environmental impact. Taking advantage of the Southern California Climate, the building maximizes energy savings and enhances the qualities of the landscape, with a green roof on the podium and continuous planters on the balcony edges of the condominium. These landscaped areas reduce heat and energy loads, act as buffers for stormwater management, and create natural habitats for local fauna, while providing health benefits to building occupants by reducing air and noise pollution and providing a connection to nature in an urban setting. All spaces in the building are designed to maximize natural ventilation and daylight while reducing direct sunlight. The facade and exterior of the building will incorporate high-performance glass, highly insulating facades and green roofs to minimize energy consumption.
