Solair, Luxury in Downtown Los Angeles
Oversized Condos from $489,500
September 15, 2011
Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center. Today I am thinking back to my last trip to the City of Angels. My wife and I flew to San Francisco, drove down the coast and stayed in a quaint bed and breakfast in San Luis Obispo, and finally made our way down to visit a friend in Los Angeles.
Our friend gave us a tour of Santa Monica, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Bowl—you know, all the touristy places. And, I remember how cool it seemed to drive past the Beverly Wilshire (where the movie Pretty Woman was filmed).
Now, 13 years later, I am turning my sights back toward Wilshire Blvd., with our newest condominium offering, coincidentally making plans to go back and visit that same old friend again shortly, and traveling through life with the same pretty woman by my side (Love you, Jackie).
Live, Work, Play at Solair
Solair is a striking, contemporary, glass tower, 22 stories tall and located in the heart of Los Angeles. Developed at a cost of $160 million, it offers a mix of residential living and retail.
The residential portion consists of 186 upscale condos. The retail space is 40,000 square feet and includes shops and restaurants.
The location is the historic intersection of Western Ave and Wilshire Blvd, right on the metro’s purple line. It’s just a quick train ride to downtown Los Angeles, or anywhere you want to go.
The Solair Lifestyle
Living at Solair is like living at a resort. It has a 7th floor amenities deck overlooking the city and the following features and services:
- Spa and pool
- 2,500 sq. ft. clubhouse
- Exercise and yoga room
- Concierge and porter
- 24-hour security
- Outdoor fire pits
- Resident herb gardens
- Indoor/outdoor lounge
- Family dining area with built-in BBQ
- Library and resident’s club
- Business center and conference room
Of course, the best perk of living at Solair is that you are a quick elevator ride away from all the restaurants and boutiques at street level.
Located in the Heart of L.A.
In addition to the restaurants within Solair, the property’s urban location offers approximately 100 restaurants within a five-minute walk of the property. Solair also is within 30 minutes of Hollywood, downtown L.A., Universal Studios and the beach.
Residents will also appreciate that when guests come to town, they are not far from Dodger Stadium, Disneyland or L.A. Live.
L.A. Live, only 10 minutes from Solair, is a $2.5 billion, downtown Los Angeles entertainment complex, adjacent to the Staples Center, which is home to five L.A. teams including the NBA’s Lakers and Clippers, and the NHL’s Kings.
If you’re a tourist, it is one of the new places that you must check out, and if you live nearby, it is one of L.A.’s “it” places to be and a perfect way to extend an evening out after a concert or a basketball game.
LA Live encompasses hotels, a theater, concert venue, AEG, ESPN radio, the Grammy Museum, Lucky Strike Bowling Alley, the Regal Theater, bars and restaurants, including, just to name a few:
- ESPN Zone
- Yard House
- Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
- Trader Vic’s
- The Farm of Beverly Hills
First-Class Features in the Residences
To create Solair, Koar Development Group, builders of many impressive mixed-use developments, like the Airport Center at LAX, combined efforts with Archeon Group, a Los Angeles-based architecture firm.
Also involved was Super Potato (gotta love that name), an internationally acclaimed interior design group from Tokyo, Japan, that makes extensive use of wood, stone and water in their projects.
The condos have oversized terraces with exceptional views of Los Angeles. They feature Bang & Olufsen home theater and sound, automated blinds, hardwood flooring, fine finishes such as Bosch stainless steel appliances and Italian cabinetry by Bontempi.

Oh, and since I mentioned her before, here is a picture of me and my pretty woman. She may not be Julia Roberts, but after 18 years together, she still puts a smile on my face every time she enters the room.
