Fountainview is located near the intersection of La Cienega and Fountain and Westview Towers. Fountain Avenue is a busy street, so condos that are street facing will get some traffic noise, the trade off for those is since they are south facing the get very good light.
There is a huge construction project going on just north of Fountainview that will be creating a lot of noise and dust for a year or two. I heard that the developers of the project gave Fountainview’s HOA a pretty hefty chunk of money for the inconvenience so expect to see some sprucing up around the property over the next couple of years.
Fountainview is sandwiched between Santa Monica Blvd and the Sunset Strip. There is a great little bistro down the street on La Cienega that is perfect for lunch or dinner, and the boutique hotel Pali House is great for visiting friends and family. On Friday nights, Pali House has live music.
The hill near the top of La Cienega is pretty steep so you will probably end up driving a lot rather than walking, but Fountainview is a short 5 minutes away from anything in West Hollywood.
