Officially founded in 1984 as the 84th city in Los Angeles County. West Hollywood is bordered on the north by the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles,on the east by the Hollywood District of Los Angeles, on the west by the city of Beverly Hills,and on the south by the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. The irregular border of the city is highlighted in the city logo and was largely formed from the unincorporated Los Angeles County area that had not become part of the surrounding cities. West Hollywood benefits from a very dense, compact urban form with small lots, a mix of land uses, and a walkable street grid. Commercial corridors include the nightlife and dining focused on the Sunset Strip, along Santa Monica Boulevard, and the Avenues of Art & Design along Robertson, Melrose, and Beverly near the Pacific Design CenterWest Hollywood is a 1.9 square mile city situated between glitzy Beverly Hills on the west and Hollywood to the east; a destination often referred to as the playground of the stars due to its entertainment industry influences and its southern-position at the base of the Hollywood Hills, a hilly area dotted with celebrity homes.
