Hollywood's Getting A New Community Pool With A 1950s-Style Pool House

It's been a long time coming, but Hollywood will be getting a shiny, new community pool this fall—and complete with a sweet 1950s-style pool house.

Frank R Webb Architects is in charge of the project and demolished the old pool at Hollywood Recreation Center located at 1122 Cole Avenue in late 2012. And we'll definitely be getting an upgrade with the new one.

Larchmont Buzz reports that the new 125′ x 75′ pool will be much bigger than the old one. (Think diving boards and swim meets where folks will be sitting on bleachers.) But, it's also the pool house that sits on the 5,000-square-foot project that sounds awesome. It will have a retro feel, a throwback to the 1950s complete with changing rooms. (The original pool was built in the 1950s, so we can see why they might be designing it that way.)

This comes by way of L.A. Department of Recreations and Parks, Councilman Mitch O’Farrell and funds from Proposition K and State Quimby Act.
