Located in eclectic Venice Beach, The Frank resides in easy proximity to Abbott Kinney and the shoreline. As the first new development on Rose Avenue, The Frank has become an anchor for revitalization in this vibrant and culturally diverse neighborhood. With ample boutique retailers and restaurants like Café Gratitude activating the ground floor, The Frank offers an authentic living experience to the community and residents within. Capitalizing on the artistic soul of Venice, The Frank features artwork commissioned exclusively from local artists, with a three-story exterior mural gracing the property entrance.
A solar hot water system generates 60% of the buildings annual demand for centralized hot water. High efficiency glazing and insulation keep the building temperature stable. The back of the property features a robust garden with corn and grape vines.
