Los Angeles (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Palazzo Westwood Village at 1060 Glendon Avenue in the heart of Westwood Village is setting a new standard for resort living in Los Angeles and, at the same time, acting as a vital catalyst for the village with over 700 new residents, premier retailers led by the popular Trader Joe's and more than 1200 new parking spaces.
Palazzo Westwood Village's 350 rental homes with the city's highest level of lifestyle amenities, city and courtyard views and superior appointments are quickly leasing and are expected to be completely full by year end. The first residents already have moved in. Two-story town homes with wrap-around terraces, great downtown views and up to three bedrooms are in great demand.
Topflight retailers have signed on for most of the commercial space along Glendon Avenue. Trader Joe's has leased the corner at Glendon and Weyburn while Rite Aid will occupy a similar space across Glendon.
Pastagina, an Italian restaurant with al fresco dining, will offer both in-restaurant and in-apartment service. Jersey Mike's Subs and It's a Grind coffee shop complete the initial retail cohort expected to open this summer.
Created by Casden Properties, Palazzo Westwood Village embraces the architectural tradition of Westwood with its distinctive towers at the Weyburn Avenue corners and its Spanish revival design. It revitalizes the original Spanish Colonial architecture of the village environment and is within easy walking distance of Westwood's wide range of shopping, movie theatres, popular restaurants, and world class museum, university and medical center.
Palazzo Westwood Village with its well articulated forms makes a clear design statement along Glendon Avenue and gracefully integrates the historic Glendon Manor. This revitalized landmark houses two-story townhomes on its upper level as well as a spa and fitness center on the first floor.
The Alhambra, the famous Moorish palace in Granada, Spain, is the inspiration for Palazzo Westwood's gardens and fountains. Each courtyard has its own carefully designed personality and together they make a journey of discovery through the grounds. Seven lavishly hand-painted tiled fountains are the centerpieces of the courtyards.
The Palazzo Westwood Village is like living at a secluded, ultra-luxurious five-star resort with the advantage of stepping out your door into a vibrant and dynamic cityscape. The rental homes all offer gourmet kitchens with hardwood floors, fireplaces, high ceilings and large terraces. Residents have gated access to the project. An additional 500 parking spaces are available for retail tenants and public use.
The resort style living includes an infinity pool and spacious private sun deck, the world class health spa and club, and concierge service to help with everything from theatre tickets and car service to birthday gifts and dog walking. The fitness center equals any resort with the finest customized equipment including exceptional cardio machines. There's also a 30-foot rock climbing wall, a weight room and exercise studio, and daily classes that include yoga, pilates and spinning. Men's and women's steam rooms, saunas, showers and changing areas are equipped with luxurious fittings and furnishings. A comfortable lounge with a 65-inch plasma screen completes the spa.
The Palazzo Westwood Village concierge acts as a personal assistant to residents and takes care of deliveries and service needs as well as booking airlines, lining up limousines or handling myriad other requests. The property management staff is available to take care of any problems that arise or to arrange for outside service people to fulfill decorating or moving needs.
The Executive Center is fully furnished with the latest technology and office equipment. Meetings for up to 20 can be held in the spacious conference room.
Casden Properties has built some of the finest residential properties in Los Angeles including the Palazzo and Villas at Park La Brea.
