Model Grand Opening of New Modern Homes in North Hollywood by Planet Home Living

Model Grand Opening Saturday, September 8th

Homes Designed by Award-Winning KTGY Architecture + Planning

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – (RealEstateRama) — Award-winning Planet Home Living announces the grand opening of Palmea, a highly anticipated collection of eight detached, modern new homes in North Hollywood. The community will showcase a fully-furnished model home set to open its doors on Saturday, September 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


“Palmea offers something truly unique with its location on a quiet street, yet walking distance to the NoHo Arts District with endless restaurants, shopping, and more,” said Planet Home Living CEO Michael Marini. “It’s a unique opportunity for families looking for a modern, new home in an established, amenity-rich area.”


Palmea’s popular location near the NoHo Arts District puts owners in the heart of Los Angeles’ thriving urban core, close to a lively village of shops, restaurants, theaters and nightlife. At the same time, Palmea is nestled on a quiet residential street. For those wanting to venture out further, it’s just a quick commute by car or public transit to Downtown L.A.

“Palmea is exactly the type of living environment that many buyers are looking for right now,” said Tracy Do of Compass Real Estate, whose team is managing sales. “L.A. is in the midst of a major shift in this regard, as more and more people seek easy access to their workplace and urban amenities. With a home at Palmea, you get that plus you own the home outright, which most buyers prefer over condo ownership.”

“Palmea is a community of structurally independent, detached single-family residences,” said Alan Scales, AIA, principal with KTGY Architecture + Planning. “With no shared walls, the homes strike an ideal balance for home buyers who seek spacious, eco-friendly living that is easy to care for and close to where they work and play.”

Pricing for these new homes in North Hollywood is expected to start from the $800,000s and homes offer two to three bedrooms with approximately 1,457 to 1,799 square feet of living space. Each detached Palmea residence features an extremely popular open living layout.

“Innovative open floorplans maximize their square footage, emphasize indoor-outdoor living, and offer flexibility to accommodate a wide variety of buyer preferences,” said Scales. “An open floor plan in the kitchen and living areas keeps the homes feeling bright and airy, and enclosed patios and upper-level decks give homeowners their own outdoor space. A ground-level bedroom may serve as a bedroom, office or studio space, ideal for professionals who work at home. Each home also has an attached, private two-car garage with direct home access and plenty of storage.”

The homes “blend modern and traditional architectural elements,” continues Scales. “Palmea’s articulated facade uses cool colors, clean lines and varied massing to provide bold, modernized architecture and unique character that is desired by the L.A. small lot home buyer.”

Designed with the latest in energy efficiency and smart home technology, the homes include a myriad of features including Premier Video Doorbells, Lyric thermostats, USB outlets, the garage door opened from your phone, and pre-wiring for electric car charging and solar panels.

Planet Home Living is an award-winning, forward-thinking builder that understands the complexities of urban infill development and contextual design principles as well as the needs and lifestyles of today’s buyers who want to own a single-family home but also live in an urban, amenity-rich walkable and established neighborhood. Planet Home Living’s community in Costa Mesa, VITAE, designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, recently won a top award for Best Unique Detached Housing.

Palmea homes are designed by international award-winning KTGY Architecture + Planning. KTGY has also designed Planet Home Living’s sold-out communities in Los Angeles including COVO in Silver Lake, PRISM in Eagle Rock, and GASPAR in Echo Park. KTGY has designed more than 1,000 homes under the Los Angeles Small Lot Ordinance.

Palmea is located at 5131 Cartwright Avenue, North Hollywood, California 91601 and will be open Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekdays by appointment only.
