In a city full of stars, this historic high-rise is a total scene-stealer.
Built-in 1965 and designed by famed West Coast-based architect Jack A. Charney, the 31-story building at 9255 Doheny Road is the tallest residential tower in the greater Los Angeles area. Developed by Walter and Leo Minskoff and situated at the base of the Hollywood Hills, Sierra Towers was converted to 146 condominiums in 1974 and has been attracting industry elite ever since. Many residents (and prospective residents) are drawn to the Towers’ discreet staff, bountiful amenities and central West Hollywood location, minutes from major production studios and downtown Beverly Hills.
“Sierra Towers is one of the most sought-after buildings in Los Angeles,” says James Harris, who represents a two-bedroom, two-bath, 2,302-square-foot residence—the Towers' only two-level offering—alongside David Parnes and The Agency’s CEO and Founder Mauricio Umansky. “It is the perfect marriage of style, location, and views.” “Located minutes from downtown Beverly Hills and the famed Sunset Strip, the Towers are a haven for celebrities seeking privacy, full services and the jetliner city to ocean views that define the L.A. lifestyle,” says Parnes.
In addition to Sierra Towers’ prime location, each residence is replete with sleek, midcentury modern interiors and amenities that defy comparison. Design elements include floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors, which open to terraces that offer sweeping views of the city, from downtown to the coast. The building also offers a fully equipped gym, pool and sundeck, valet service and 24-hour concierge.
Today, the Towers is currently home to a number of high-profile actors, musicians and industry pros, including Joan Collins, Elton John, and Courteney Cox. Past residents include David Geffen and Cher—both of whom lived in the aforementioned two-level estate available now.
“Several of my billionaire clients who live in Sierra Towers are playing monopoly and combining adjacent units,” says agent Arvin Haddad, who currently represents two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence #2005, listed for $4,494,500. “The building will be the most obvious choice for retirement for the aging baby boomers who currently live in the ultra-luxury estates of Beverly Hills, Trousdale and Bel Air. Due to the shift of supply and demand, I predict the building will grow even more in popularity in the next five years.”
