Geoff Palmer departs from Fauxtalian ways with exterior of DTLA development
Developer Geoff Palmer has taken a drastically different approach with the exterior of his new apartment complex Broadway Palace on South Broadway.
Instead of his usual Faux-Italianate style, Palmer’s brick building was designed to fit into Downtown’s historic district and even has a bright marquee like the neighboring theaters, Curbed reported. In the courtyard of the University-housing-style complex, however, his usual predilections are on display: bright yellow, palm trees, small balconies, and a fortress-like quality.
Built in two phases, the project opened its doors to tenants last month with perks such as a teak wood steam room, indoor basketball and volleyball courts, a karaoke lounge and a screening room.
One-bedroom units from 625 square feet to 950 square feet cost between $2,100 a month to about $2,800 a month to rent. Two-bedroom units, between 930 square feet to 1,038, range from $2,900 to $3,100 a month.
Palmer, who recently purchased a new estate in Beverly Hills flats, is also working on the Fauxtalian Ferrante, a seven-story building with 1,500 units and 30,000 square feet of commercial space on a 10-acre lot next to the 110 Freeway. [Curbed] — Subrina Hudson
