NoHo Arts is a burgeoning East Valley area that occupies one very eclectic, historic, and active square mile within the limits of North Hollywood proper. The past couple of years have seen a dramatic increase in multi-use condo construction and the arrival of chain retail and food purveyors thanks in part to the neighborhood's role as major transit hub (NoHo Arts hosts the termini of both the Red and the Orange Lines) and the Community Redevelopment Agency's (CRA) massive efforts to (re)vitalize the area. What is at times most striking about this vibrant patch of land is the omnipresent contrast of old versus new, as seen predominantly in the architecture--and in spite of its own blossoming and undeniable urbanity.
