Other projects will debut soon, including the West Hollywood Edition, designed by Ian Schrager (an early reviver of the Sunset Strip with his Mondrian Hotel). Slated to open in 2018, the 150-room hotel will be topped by 20 condos, each about 3,000 square feet, with expansive terraces and outdoor kitchens. Architect Frank Gehry is poised to put his mark on the street as well with 8150 Sunset Boulevard, a five-building complex with two residential towers and a shopping center.
