The complex is in sad shape now. A lot of the great architectural detailing has been removed, including the overhang 
on the second floor and the redwood louvres. 

It's been for sale for at least a couple years. It's now at $1.1 Million.  There's no mention of it being designed by Grossman. 
There's also a 2BR unit for rent for $1,900.

Here's the description from Redfin:

"Completely remodeled 3 unit complex across from Universal Studios. Custom kitchens with 
designer chocolate cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counters in every unit. 
All units have views, thravertine throughout and cut berber carpets in the bedrooms. 
new custom bathrooms and the 2 bedroom units have laundry in their unit. The 1 bedroom 
rents for $1500 and 1 of the 2 bedrooms rent for $1900 and the other 1 rents for $2100. 
All units also have central air."

I think it's safe to say that isn't a Greta designed sconce.

Crappiest windows money can buy.

Of course they went with granite countertops and chocolate cabinets.

At least it has a decent view, though the railings make it hard to look at.
Won't somebody please buy this building and remove all this crap?
