West Hollywood

Occasionally referred to locally as WeHo, West Hollywood is its own city within the city of Los Angeles, incorporated in 1984. It is bounded on the city of Beverly Hills on the west, Hollywood Hills on the north, Hollywood on the east, the Fairfax District on the southeast and Beverly Grove on the southwest.

West Hollywood benefits from a very dense, compact urban form with small lots, mixed land use, and a walkable street grid making it the most walkable city in California. Commercial corridors include the nightlife and dining on the Sunset Strip, along Santa Monica Blvd. and the Avenues of Art & Design along Robertson, Melrose and Beverly Boulevard. Notable attractions, besides the Sunset Strip, include the Pacific Design Center, hotels such as Sunset Marquis Hotel and the Mondrian, music venues such as House of Blues, Whisky a Go Go, The Troubador and The Roxy Theater, the Comedy Store, Sierra Towers (one of the tallest residential buildings in the greater Los Angeles area), the trendy clothing boutiques and interior design shops along Melrose Avenue and the landmark 1920s Spanish Revival and Art Deco apartment buildings around Fountain Avenue.

Residential neighborhoods include the highly rated restaurants along La Cienaga Blvd. among others, Norma Triangle, West Hollywood Heights, and West Hollywood North/West/East – all of which are only a few blocks long or wide. West Hollywood has always been a densely populated area of renters which was the impetus for the incorporation of the city. Today, it has one of the strongest rent control laws in the nation. Because of that and because of its convenient location within L.A. plus its dining and nightlife, the flats of West Hollywood is a mecca for young adults.
