Angelenos will soon say bye-bye to that old-school strip mall on Sunset and Crescent Heights. The space, which formerly hosts a McDonald's, a Chase bank, and one of the best frozen yogurt joints in town (Ice Cream Plus's dairy-free peanut butter chocolate yogurt is next-level, seriously), will soon be demolished to may way for Frank Gehry's huge mixed-use development called 8150 Sunset.
Our sister site Curbed LA reveals that the project will feature "249 apartments, about 100,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, and lots of open areas, including a central plaza, 'with an emphasis on pedestrian and bicycle access,' according to a press release." Which retail stores would you like to see here? Whoever scores a space will definitely get some celebrity foot traffic, as starry hotel Chateau Marmont is across the street.
