Melrose (aka Greenwood) Place

Jan 25th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

melose.jpeg The apartment building used as the exterior of the fictional apartment complex “Melrose Place” on the TV show of the same name cannot actually be found on, or anywhere near, the real Melrose Avenue. In real life, the complex is called the “El Pueblo Apartments” and is located on Greenwood Place in Los Feliz, a short distance from Hollywood.

This location I found in my fave stalking book “The Ultimate Hollywood Tour Book“, which described the “El Pueblo” as “dumpy” in person. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the apartments, because I found them to be adorable! I would love to live there! The “El Pueblo” looks very much as it did on Melrose Place and I swear I could almost envision Amanda and Billy conversing at the mailboxes at the entrance to the building.

Until next time, Happy Stalking! :)

Stalk It: The real “Melrose Place” is located at 4616 Greenwood Place in Los Feliz. While it looks pretty much the same as it did when it was depicted the show, don’t go looking for the interior courtyard pool. Sadly, that only existed on a soundstage. :( If you would like to stalk Melrose Avenue – the neighborhood where the Melrose Placers supposedly lived – hit the stretch of Melrose between Fairfax and La Brea. There are many cute – and a few very odd – shops and restaurants located in that area. For more upscale stalking, head west of Fairfax, where you can find shopping mecca Fred Segal, Agent Provocateur and countless others.

    Susan Struthers, the daughter of Rosemary LaBianca also lived there in 1969 at the time of her mother’s death by the “Manson Family”

    Raymond Chandler also lived in this building around 1933.

    I’ve actually been here before, and it’s not more than 5 blocks from my apartment. Los Feliz is actually one of the most expensive parts of LA, so the book is completely wrong by saying it’s in a bad area of town.

    Hi.

    Thank you for the directions. I just got back. Where was Amanda and Billy? And I did not see Jane’s apartment. It’s just the exterior of the building. There was no inner courtyard. Well I can say I visited it now but at the cost of 2 hours in traffic. Anyone that comes here you are just going to see the outside of the building there is nothing inside.
