Spencer and Heidi’s Apartment – the Holy Grail of Filming Locations!Jan 13th, 2008 | By Lindsay | Category: The Hills Filming Locations
I don’t know what’s sadder – that it took me as long as it did to locate Speidi’s apartment building or the fact that I was so completely consumed with finding it in the first place! I keep asking myself – Why am I so fixated on these two idiots? I have no logical answer. All I can say is that even though I think Spencer and Heidi are both complete douchebags, I am still totally obsessed with them!
For the past few months I have spent countless hours on Los Angeles apartment websites searching for Speidi’s building, with no luck whatsoever. I was beginning to think I was losing my touch! (Gasp!) So, this weekend, as a last resort, I bought Season Two of The Hills in the hopes that I could find some clue as to their apartment’s location on the DVDs. A side benefit in purchasing Season 2 on DVD is that I can now watch the scene where Heidi tells Spencer that her answer to moving in with him is “No” and he says “Sweet! My answer is get out of my car!” over and over again! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that!
Anyway, success came pretty quickly because on the Season 2 Finale, in the scene when Spencer first shows Heidi the apartment, I found a few clues that led me to the right spot. I first noticed the address number “1333” behind Spencer’s head as he was sitting on the front steps of the building waiting for Heidi. After they tour the apartment, he takes her out onto the balcony and points out various Hollywood hot spots that he and Heidi frequent. That let me know the apartment had to be in Hollywood, west of Las Palmas Ave. From there I just googled the terms “1333” and “Hollywood Apartments” which led me to a listing Craig’s List and I knew I had found it!
I dragged my boyfriend to the La Fontaine apartments this afternoon to check out the place – and since I just happen to be in the market for an apartment myself, I buzzed the manager to take us on a tour of the available units. The apartments are really nice on the inside – dark hardwood floors, high ceilings, granite counter-tops. If only the one we viewed had the word “Hollywood” graffiti-ed on the living room wall, I just might have taken it right then and there!
Stalk It: Spencer and Heidi’s apartment building, La Fontaine, is located at 1333 N. Curson in Hollywood. You can check out the La Fontaine website here – http://www.frostchaddock.com/. For $2700 and up, you can be Speidi’s neighbor! To take a tour of the available apartments, buzz the manager at the sister building across the street at 1322 N. Curson.
