The Broadway Building -- Hollywood, CA
Another KOR Development project along with Killefer Flammang Architects (see Eastern Columbia), the Broadway was originally designed by Los Angeles architect Frederick Rice Dorn, in a Renaissance manner stylized with decorative Corinthian reliefs and columns supporting the upper level loggias. Located on the corner of famous cross streets of Hollywood and Vine, the building combines two structures (a six-story 1938 International style addition by Parkinson & Parkinson) and the original 1927 building. The complete renovation includes new windows, roofing and waterproofing along with many other waterproofing components such as patio deck, pavers, parapet waterproofing and pool & spa waterproofing.
The photos show the original roof prior to removal during the demolition phase of the project, followed by roofing and waterproofing applications. The builder, Hopkins Construction was able to bring the many different facets and systems for construction.
D 7 provided Design and Construction Administration services throughout the project and Quality Assurance observation. Many months of effort went into the place that many of Hollywood’s rich and famous now call home.
