SECOND HOME HOLLYWOOD
Location: 1370 N St Andrews Place, Los Angeles
Developer: Bond Companies/Klaff Realty, LP
Completed in September 2019, Second Home Hollywood was developed by Bond Companies as a one-of-a-kind collaboration involving cutting-edge construction and daring, forward-looking design creating LA’s most innovative co-working office campus. Located in East Hollywood, a blighted area that has long struggled to attract investment capital and the Hollywood creative community, the property eschewed traditional development by creating the “densest urban forest” on the west coast, a biophilic sanctuary with over 6,500 plants and trees carefully curated on a 2-acre site. The site’s emphasis on nature enhances the local ecosystem. The development consists of 60 lemon-yellow roofed office pods, a full-service restaurant, a 200-seat auditorium, a bookstore and a two-story building by one of LA’s most famous architects, Paul Williams. Each oval office space is lined with custom-designed outward-facing built-in desks underneath a yellow steel-braced ceiling enabling 100% of the occupants to enjoy the lush greenery through the transparency of the acrylic wall system.

Herbalife Nutrition is committed to innovation and The Greenhouse is a physical representation of that commitment.
