We are a high-end residential construction and professional services company that provides a wide range of integrated offerings, spanning the entire life cycle of a client relationship.
Our unique expertise in high rise construction began nearly 35 years ago with our founding in New York City, where we work in many of the most prestigious buildings in the city. Overcoming the challenges of working in such a demanding environment requires us to develop a highly specialized approach to high rise construction.
Successfully navigating aggressive schedules, an unwavering commitment to quality, and a host of logistical challenges has provided an opportunity to rethink and reimagine the conventional approach to high rise construction. It is this highly sought-after expertise that has afforded us the opportunity to build some of the most complicated and sophisticated apartments in Los Angeles over the past 20 years.
Engagement structures vary and are tailored to meet the unique requirements of each unique luxury construction project. We firmly believe that a client relationship must be built on a foundation of trust and an unwavering commitment to exceptional quality, craftsmanship, expertise and concierge level service irrespective of a project’s size, location or complexity.
8899 Beverly & I-Grace
As the first and only residential building in the coveted West Hollywood Arts and Design District, 8899 Beverly is the most exclusive and sought-after residential development to grace West Hollywood. Designed by esteemed Olson Kundig Architects, 8899 Beverly includes a limited collection of 48 homes divided between a ten-story tower and eight standalone townhome residences.
8899 Beverly is the result of a decade-long pursuit to transform an iconic mid-century modern building into architecturally significant, handcrafted homes and to create the most extraordinary residential building in Los Angeles. Architecturally remastered by Olson Kundig, the project elevates living to new heights with epic, sweeping and unobstructed views.
Tower Residences interior finishes include Italian Travertine floors, patinated bronze wall panels, French White Oak flooring and extensive wood ceilings above the operable Vitrocsa.
Custom-designed chef’s kitchens feature white oak cabinetry, Italian Calacatta gold marble countertops and backsplash, and custom Angel-Hair brushed stainless steel hoods. Appliance packages include a Gaggenau 400 series cooktop, Miele wall oven with integrated and plumbed espresso makers, Dornbracht fixtures with separate hand spray, Sub-Zero refrigerators, Miele double-dishwasher, separate icemaker and full height Sub-Zero wine refrigerator in select residences.
Outdoor spaces include Italian silver travertine flooring on raised pedestals, with a high-end, Swiss-made, floor-to-ceiling operable glazing system, wood ceilings with bronze details, and uncaptured Starphire glass railing. Residences are designed to maximize both entertaining spaces and master suites with oversize interior volumes, large exposures to the surrounding landscape, and highly finished interiors with warm and natural materials.
Set along Rosewood Avenue, adjacent to the residential tower, the 8 Rosewood Houses each offer entirely different architectural expressions—combining natural materials such as wood, steel, glass, concrete and stone—while still ensuring residents benefit from the five-star services and amenities of 8899 Beverly.
8899 Beverly matches its services to the sensibilities of its residents, with attentive and discreet staff reflecting the standards of five-star hotel living, while still maintaining the personal touch that ensures residents always feel at home.
