Kilroy’s second development in Hollywood, on Vine, is a ~600,000 SF mixed-use, creative urban campus that artfully blends workplace, production, and luxury residential within a full 3.5-acre city block. The workplace and production spaces are 100% leased by Netflix and are nearing completion in 4Q2020. The property is buzzing with activity as Netflix builds out its newest Hollywood location, with their tenant improvements slated to be completed the first half of 2021. Jardine, the site’s luxury residential tower, is wrapping up construction and slated for preleasing in 1Q2021.
on Vine is targeting LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, and the project was designed by architect Joey Shimoda FAIA, principal of Shimoda Design Group. The public art was instrumental in the masterplan of the property from the very beginning. The art piece, SPECTRUM, pulls the energy from Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street right into the heart of the project. It was envisioned to be interwoven into the fabric of the buildings. “SPECTRUM augments the design on so many different levels, and in this case the architecture and the art become one” says Shimoda. “It is unique in that the art aligns perfectly with the lobby entrance, where the entrance to the building and the art become a singular experience. The entry doors and the art become one and the visitor experiences SPECTRUM as a six-story high passage into the building.”
THE COMMUNITY | SUPPORTING HOLLYWOOD’S HOMELESS YOUTH
The virtual art reveal coincides with a charitable campaign by Kilroy to support homeless youth. Hollywood is reeling from a pre-COVID homeless crisis, now worsened by the pandemic. Kilroy is working towards a brighter future through the built environment and strategic partnerships with 501c3 My Friend’s Place, a Hollywood-based organization helping youth experiencing homelessness to move toward wellness, stability and self-sufficiency. In providing a $10,000 donation alongside 2,000 pre-prepared meals in partnership with Everytable, Kilroy aims to support some of Los Angeles’ most vulnerable populations and kick-start a long-lasting partnership with this impactful community resource.
