One Beverly Hills presents a unifying vision for the Beverly Hilton, 9900 Wilshire and the Unocal gas station properties. A master planned site designed within the envelope of the already entitled 1.375 million square feet – no additional square footage is required – it will create landmark architecture and spectacular publicly accessible Botanical Gardens.
Concentrating the height on the Century City side of the property creates 10 acres of open space and Botanical Gardens, 4.5 acres of publicly accessible Botanical Gardens and a 3.5-acre private garden for the residents of One Beverly Hills. The gardens will have 2 miles of walking paths threaded through, a mile in the public gardens and a mile in the private garden.
The elegant Santa Monica & Gardens residential buildings are 200 feet apart to preserve view corridors and are located on the southwestern side of the property. The Luxury Hotel & Residences building on Wilshire Boulevard is set back 45 feet from the road and carefully screened with lush native plantings. The existing Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills hotels remain on the property’s eastern portion.
