Five units are now on the market—including a $9.5 million penthouse—in L.A.’s celebrity studded, iconic Sierra Towers. Former residents of the famed 31-story West Hollywood high-rise include David Geffen, Sidney Poitier, Lindsay Lohan, Matthew Perry and Rachel Zoe. Elton John, Joan Collins, Cher, and Courtney Cox are amongst the current homeowners at the 9255 Doheny Road condominium building.
The building is truly irreplaceable; modern zoning laws would not allow such a high-rise to be built in that area. Its unique position as the tallest building in West Hollywood, paired with its breathtaking views, beautiful architecture, and discreet staff are all factors that have worked to make the Sierra Towers one of L.A.’s most expensive high-rises—with units consistently selling for $1,000 a foot or more.
The Sierra Towers, designed by Jack A. Charney, was originally developed for $12 million by Walter and Leo Minskoff; nearly the same amount as the asking price for the available penthouse. It first opened in 1966 and drew celebrities like David Jensen, star jockey Willie Shoemaker, and then Tawny Kitaen. Frank Sinatra allegedly helped finance the project because he wanted his mother to live in the building. In more recent years, residents recount real-life celebrity moments such as Lindsay Lohan arguing with then-boyfriend Scott Storch in the elevator, and Joan Collins and her Dynasty nemesis Diahann Carroll exercising together in the building’s gym.
