The Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Los Angeles (BOMA) recently awarded Kilroy's Sunset Media Center building the 2014 Local TOBY Award for Best Renovated Building. This complex renovation included the entire first and second floor public areas and lobbies in the 22-story high rise building, as well as the valet parking area, garage and complete site upgrades. The entire ground floor was demolished and expanded by cutting out the existing 2nd floor concrete deck and providing structural upgrades to create a two story open Mezzanine with glass guardrails. As an even larger challenge, all of this work was completed without disruption to the various ground floor tenants including restaurants, coffee shops, banks and retail tenants, as well as all of the corporate tenants that make up the remaining floors of the building.
Prominently positioned on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, the renovated building now includes new interior and exterior storefront and glazing, a structural glass curtain wall system at the building’s entrance, back-painted glass and stainless steel trim throughout the interior spaces, complete elevator upgrades, new exterior concrete stairs, planters, hardscape and seating areas, and exterior building lighting including tower lighting from the 22nd floor. Custom artwork by David Flores creates the aesthetic tone throughout.
