The 1960s Mid-Century Modern building formerly known as a Bank of America at 8025 Santa Monica Blvd, is on the chopping block. Located near the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Crescent Heights, developers are proposing to demolish the existing 4,120 sq. ft. where the former bank stands, to building to build and construct a seven-story, 82,510 sq. ft. mixed-use building.
The proposed development will include the following:
- Offer approximately 3,900 sq. ft. of commercial space, residential lobby, storage rooms and garage entrance with 13 parking spaces at the ground floor.
- Include a total of 115 micro-studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residential units at the second through seventh floors, including 16 income restricted units.
- Offer common open space including a 1,634 sq. ft. courtyard at the second floor, 2,086 sq. ft. rear deck at the sixth floor, and a 8,131 sq. ft. rooftop deck.
- Build a two-level underground garage containing an additional 102 parking spaces for a project total of 115 spaces.

The Bank of America closed some time in the summer of 2021. According to the Los Angeles County Assessor’s website that particular Bank of America served the local West Hollywood community since 1998.
If approved, the seven-story 82,510 sq. ft. mixed-use building will be located next door to the up and coming Villa Noble, a cannabis business consumption area (smoking, vaping, edibles) at 8001 Santa Monica Boulevard, Unit A, on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Laurel Avenue, across the street from the French Market building, which is also being redeveloped. Villa Noble will replace the original 1922 Spanish Colonial Revival style building currently standing at 8001-8003 Santa Monica Blvd.
So does anybody know about the history and what the brown wooden building in between this former bank and 8001-8003 Santa Monica Blvd was?
Let it go.
Why stop at 7 stories City Hall??? Why not cram the West Coast World Trade Center into that spot???? Who’s getting paid off to green light these projects? It’s absolutely insane
I so agree. We need taller buildings with more apartments.
I agree with you, but I don’t think that’s what Tom mean’t above lol
Disappointed they are tearing down this 1960s building but not surprised. It is a huge lot so we all say a giant development coming. There nothing special about the special about the renderings. There is no character. Too bad they can’t work the building into the renderings. maybe make it a restaurant with mix-use on the side. The truth is they don’t care about historical buildings so another one bites the dust.
Wow, it’s amazing how incoherent your English is and how dumbfounded your comments are on such a beautiful rendering…you clearly are part of the trash that infests this city. “Too bad they can’t work the building into the rendering”…do you even have a high school education? As a longstanding Weho resident, I will do my part to support progressive and catalytic projects like this rather than let sites like this one fester with dirty homeless trespassing.
Long-standing eh? Perhaps it’s time you sit down and contemplate why you can’t get your point across without bashing others.
Wow. You’re right. I do sound incoherent. Remind me to never post a comment from my phone again. What’s your excuse for sounding so damn unhinged? I’ve been called trash for lots of things, but being called that for saying I like a building is a first. I can tell you that there is nothing progressive about the proposed building without resorting to calling you names. It looks like an old folks home. But that’s just me. I’m incoherent and you have bad taste.
I will miss the building, but we need the housing.
Housing for who? This will be another eyesore of a building that will not be affordable.
Agreed on needing the housing, the building as it stands is underutilized and an eyesore.
NOT ENOUGH PARKING… as usual for WEST HOLLYWOOD!
They will build and outzone and knock out four parking spaces.
