Our cousins over at Curbed LA reported on Latitude 33 back in March, when the condos were but an incomplete vision with a "name that sounds like a men's cologne or an airport bar." Now Los Angeles-based KAA Design Group, who completed the architecture, landscape, and interiors, brings word that the building, developed by SunBrook Partners, has been finished. Residences are now for sale for $600K to $2.6M; at the moment, 10 have been sold and another 10 are in escrow.
Latitude 33's 122 condos are split among three separate lifestyle-themed "collections"—Sky, Boardwalk, and Beach—and range from single-story units in a nine-floor "Sky Tower" to two-story townhomes to three-level beach bungalows. Interior details for one and all include plank hardwood flooring, cabinetry from Italian design firm Bontempi, Grohe and Porcelanosa fixtures, and SubZero and Wolf appliances. As for the model apartments, shown above, KAA aimed for the stylish-yet-approchable look by incorporating a mix of higher-end vintage pieces and mass-market furnishings. On the exterior ground floor of the Sky Tower, there's a translucent band of clear glass panes that wraps around what will ultimately be a whole array of swank retail spaces. The first to open will be a Pilates studio, naturally—this is California, after all! What's that, you hear? Oh, just the stilettoed footsteps of the impossibly long-legged beautiful people coming out to play.
