Sunset & St. Andrews is an 18,000 s.f. retail center in East Hollywood. Unlike conventional retail centers, Sunset & St. Andrews is configured with the parking at the rear and the retail spaces fronting the Sunset Blvd. sidewalk. This arrangement enhances pedestrian activity and encourages outdoor dining spaces which are greatly desirable amenities in this neighborhood. Award-winning Architects Roschen Van Cleve designed a highly articulated and playful façade that adds urban vitality to this otherwise grim stretch of Sunset Blvd. The success of this retail center is evidenced by its long-term national credit tenants such as Starbucks, Sprint, H & R Block and Panda Express.
