Hollywood Bungalow Courts 1516, 1544, 1554 N. Serrano Avenue and 1721 N. Kingsley Drive, Hollywood
These four bungalow courts from the 1920s exemplify Hollywood's residential development during the early twentieth century. Despite being somewhat neglected and altered over the years, the properties retained many of their historic features. Yet much of the land had since been zoned for much higher density, making the bungalows prime demolition targets during the building craze of the early 2000s. Through civic leadership, public-nonprofit partnership, and a federal historic tax credit, the properties were rehabilitated into forty-two units of special-needs and low-income housing. The project rescued a considerable amount of threatened historic architecture, providing valuable housing along with a priceless link to the past.
