Cherokee Lofts by Pugh + Scarpa
Cherokee Lofts is the most advanced and distinctive building of its kind in Los Angeles. It will be the first “green” LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified building in Hollywood per the U.S. Green Building Council certification system and the first LEED Gold Certified mixed-use or market-rate multifamily building in Southern California. The development pays homage to the significant musical and Hollywood history of Cherokee Recording Studios, MGM Studios before it, and all the artists who recorded music on the site from Frank Sinatra to David Bowie to Dave Matthews. Its unique architectural form and integrated function create a high-performing building that is an expression of the environmental and cultural context in which it is built.
