Our name comes from El Centro Avenue, which runs down the east side of the block. The root word centrum originally meant the fixed point around which you draw a circle—the middle of it all. Hence: center stage, centerpiece, center court, centerfield, centerfold, EL CENTRO.
With views of the Hollywood Hills to the north and DTLA to the south, El Centro’s Hollywood and Vine apartments are the midpoint between Westside prestige and Eastside energy. The daily necessities of life are within a five-minute walk—gym, co-working, apothecary, matcha, mezcal cocktails.
“What’s our take on Hollywood? We love the Hollywood Farmers' Market, Musso & Frank, Sugarfish, Neuehouse, Gwen, La Poubelle, the David Hockney pool at the Tropicana.” —
Los Angeles may offer residents a naturally active lifestyle, but Hollywood undoubtedly makes it convenient. El Centro lies but minutes away from both Griffith Park and Topanga Canyon, where the views are as spectacular as the workouts.
El Centro establishes itself as a self-contained neighborhood on a full city block east of Hollywood and Vine. Viacom, Netflix, and Capitol Records are in the neighborhood. The Metro is half a block away, and goes directly downtown. A ten-minute Lyft will get you to Mozza or Kismet. For residents with a fresh take on Hollywood living, El Centro really is at the center of everything.
Restaurants, bars, and shops will line the Paseo and fill El Centro’s ground floor. When you leave the property, you’ll literally be walking on stars along Hollywood Boulevard. (The iconic silver-screen heartthrob Rudolph Valentino’s star is out front.) The ArcLight Cinema is just moments down the road, and major museums aren’t much further.
The middle of it all: From El Centro, it’s less than seven minutes on foot to the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, Paley restaurant, Trader Joe’s, WeWork, Soul Cycle, and K&L Wine.
