During the real estate boom, it wasn’t uncommon to see a celebrity driving a U-Haul truck into downtown. There was Johnny Depp and John Stamos, moving into the Eastern Columbia, there was Nicolas Cage renting in the Biscuit Lofts, and Shaquille O’Neal was said to be taking a unit in the Ritz-Carlton Residences (no confirmation he is closing). But after the crash, all those celebs-living-in-downtown stories dried up. (Instead, trendy restaurants became the new celebs.) But in a sign of a possible market rebound, a tipster passes on word that actor Terrence Howard (“Ray,” “Crash,” “Iron Man” and more), is now renting a two-bedroom, two bath corner unit in 1100 Wilshire. Critics will look down on the City West neighborhood—it’s not really downtown, they’ll argue!—but no one can beat the 1100 Wilshire pool. Enjoy it, Mr. Howard. · 1100 Wilshire Archives [Curbed LA]
