French Revival

Historical Summary:

The six-story Savoy Plaza apartment building, located at 1360 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard, is an L-shaped structure elaborated in a French Revival Style. The steeply-pitched roof with finials strongly relates to the building's French character. The building also incorporates parking into its design. Constructed in 1929, the structure at 1360 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard is representative of a significant pattern of development in West Hollywood. The 1920's and early 30's saw the construction of a number of high-density buildings of sophisticated design in the area around Fountain Avenue. The result was a loose concentration of luxurious buildings that strongly contrasted with the low density single-family development more common to western Los Angeles. The high-rise form and extensive detailing of 1360 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard are evocative of this period of development.
