Anyone have some feedback on this place? It looks like a strong candidate for me to move there.

great central location, but very expensive. there are plenty of apartments near the Grove/farmer's market/park la brea/miracle mile area that are very nice and much cheaper.

I havent seen any townhomes for 2400 that were in nice neighborhoods or were very nice at all. $2400 = $400k loan and you cant get anything for $400k.

maybe not. but definitely a condo. why would you want to spend 2400 on a single bed room. how long r u intending to stay? what is your yearly income.. you might want to buy a home in playa if you have a good income...rents will increase by 20-30 % in apartments like palazzo if you buy a home you will have fixed mortgage.. r u ok with paying 2400 for 1year and then paying 3000$ next year ...3300$ in 2010 etc? think about it! you might as well buy a codo or townhome even uptil 600k it would still cost you 3500-3700 whereas u wud pay the same amount in palazzo in 2010.

I could buy in a lot of areas, but ill be working at USC. I need somewhere close to there so I wont have to spend all day commuting...That's why I need an apartment in WeHo and cant afford to buy a nice house/condo there.

west hollywood is not close to USC. look at this map:

City of Los Angeles Map - Larger View

west hollywood is the eastern part of the unlabeled area next to hollywood. USC is in south LA, just below west adams, and slightly west of the 110 (the red line dilineating south and southeast LA). the distance in miles isn't great, but around here, that's a cross-town commute, which we generally try to avoid.

note that there is no freeway through or near west hollywood. this means that at rush hour it will take you 20-30 minutes just to get to the nearest on-ramp before you begin the freeway portion of your cross-town crawl. the surface-street routes will take you through some of the most busy and congested parts of town, and will likely take just as long. think carefully about this before you commit to a place in west hollywood.

who told you that, someone from orange county?

there is no rail to west hollywood, and the buses will sit in the same traffic as your car-- plus, you'll need at least two of them to get you there.

have you considered culver city? it isn't exactly next door to USC, but it has good freeway access, and the surface-street routes are direct ones.
