Pico Lanai, Santa Monica, CA (apartments)

Pages: 1 3 replies


Name:Pico Lanai
Street:2501 Pico Blvd.
City:Santa Monica

The Pico Lanai apartments in Santa Monica, CA were originally advertised as a motel and apartments - with a coffee shop! The property was recently sold. This a 2.8 acre site with 174 apartments and lots of parking, so I assume it will be replaced. I found this ad in a 1960 edition of the Los Angeles Times but can't figure out how to upload the image.

Here you go!

Fantastic sign! Amazing this place has not been documented until now.


WOW...nice find HopeChest. I absolutely agree Dustycajun, that is such a cool sign. It would be awesome if it was still around. I quickly looked at google street view, and it looks like the Pico Lanai still exists, and their logo has a small Hawaiian flower, so, a small nod to it's past, but, no sign. I would make a drive to the place if the sign was still there !!
