Los Angeles, CA

Featured Building: Blair House

The Wilshire Corridor
Wilshire Boulevard was mostly lined by apartment buildings until the late 1960s, when the concept of condominium homes arose, leading to a rush of building conversions. Once the opportunities for apartment conversion dried up, high-rises condos were built from scratch, some reaching up to 27 floors in height.

The area became known as “the Wilshire Corridor” because the meandering road and tall properties seem to carve a corridor through the Westwood area. There are more than 30 high-rise, multifamily buildings now lining this stretch of road.

Blair House, built in 1989, is a full-service condominium that rises above many of its neighbors to offer sweeping views from Downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean and from the Hollywood Sign to Catalina. This contemporary high rise with modernist architecture offers 128 units, most of which are large two and three bedroom apartments, on 28 floors.

The attractive octagonal building is laden with every amenity to allow for a lifestyle of luxury and attracts celebrities and successful Angelinos alike. The Blair House is one of the few buildings on the Wilshire Corridor with a tennis court.
