The Eastside of West Hollywood has gone through many changes over the last several decades. With an urban design and character that is unique and distinguished from surrounding neighborhoods, the Eastside is bounded by N. La Brea Avenue to the east, Fountain Avenue to the north, N. Hayworth Avenue to the west, and the West Hollywood city boundary to the south (approximately Willoughby Avenue west of Gardner and Romaine Street east of Gardner).
The Eastside’s mix of regional and small-scale local retail stores along Santa Monica Boulevard and adjacent small and medium-scale residential areas on the north and south make the area highly walkable. Historically, among other things, the Eastside has been known for its strongly rooted Russian-speaking community and its range of locally oriented community markets and shops. The development of The Gateway at N. La Brea Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard spurred an interest in development and the area has seen hundreds of new residential units come online, which has created revitalization and, also, changes.
In 2017, the City of West Hollywood adopted its Eastside Community Priorities Plan, which looks toward the dynamic opportunities of the future, while retaining neighborhood charm. The plan articulates a shared community vision and focuses on programs and actions that improve the character of the area and improve service needs.
