The North Hollywood Senior Arts Colony

Are you a retiring Baby Boomer who has always dreamed of living in a vibrant artist's colony?  Now you have that option in one of the most exciting cities in the world.  The NoHo Senior Arts Colony is a rental apartment community in the heart of North Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.  It gives retirees ages 62 and older the opportunity to live in a modern, fully equipped one or two bedroom apartment with access to amenities that include a pool, exercise equipment, art studios, literary programs, a theatre and a wellness program.

This community first came to my attention when it won the Community of the Year award from the National Association of Home Builders - 2014 Best of 50+ Housing.  I thought that winning this award was especially remarkable for a senior apartment complex and wanted to learn more about it.

Apartments at NoHo Senior Arts Colony

The modern apartments in this complex have gourmet kitchens with granite counters and a full appliance package, including refrigerator and microwave.  Each unit has a private washer and dryer, as well as either a private balcony or patio.  Residents have a choice of using either cable or DIRECTV.

This community is pet friendly and there is an underground, gated parking garage.  Rentals are competitive with other apartment complexes in Los Angeles and are within the means of many couples who are both receiving Social Security.

One bedroom apartments start at $1620 a month.
Two bedroom apartments start at $2120 a month.

Community Amenities

*  Heated Swimming Pool
*  Fully equipped fitness center
*  Billiards Room
*  Visual Arts Studio
*  Digital Arts Studio
*  Literary Studio
*  Artist's Lounge and Terrace for socializing

Neighborhood Amenities

In addition to the wonderful community amenities that are available to artists, writers, actors and art lovers, this community is also located in the heart of North Hollywood.  This means you are only a short distance away from restaurants, live theater and museums.  It is located near the Art Institute of California - Hollywood, the North Hollywood Regional Library, and the North Hollywood Recreation Center.

In addition, residents are just a short drive to the Bob Hope Airport, Providence/St. Joseph Hospital, Griffith Park, the Hollywood Bowl and Universal Studios.

Living in Southern California provides you with pleasant weather the year around, as well as access to beaches, shopping, sporting events and charming neighborhoods.  Being in North Hollywood means that you will be living in the heart of all that Los Angeles has to offer.

If you have ever wanted to live in a vibrant artist's/writer's/actor's community, it is hard to imagine one with more opportunities than this one has to offer.
