They paved paradise and put up a… condo building. Though in the case of the recently finished Cherokee Lofts in Los Angeles, a LEED-certified retrofit of a former recording studio is a pitch-perfect way to preserve Hollywood legacy. The former Cherokee Recording Studios, MGM Studios before it, hosted everyone from Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder to Johnny Cash and Dave Matthews. In a nod to its storied past, the developers put on an open house decorated in the styles of three other recording artists: David Bowie (awesome), Alice in Chains (okay, sure), and 30 Seconds to Mars (huh?). Sneak a peek after the jump.
