MASTER PLANNING

LUXURY HIGH-RISE COMMUNITY AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS

LOCATION: Hollywood, CA

OWNER: SunCal Communities

 
The result of Universal Studios's invitation only "Request for Proposal ", this concept for Universal's backlot was integral in this proposal being selected over others. The vision for this planned community was to capture the essence of Hollywood's Golden Era in a one-of-kind luxury high-rise community of distinct developments linked by a grand boulevard, rimmed with parks and all surrounded by lush open hillside.

Donald Getman, AIA's concept minimized the grading and export by placing the boulevard and proposed building garages at the existing grade elevations while pushing the remainder into the hillside. Townhomes were planned to rim the garage and face the boulevard. Distinct parcels allowed for construction phasing and individual orientation to maximize city and hillside views.
