The Hollywood Tower Apartments, a 52-unit complex on the National Register of Historic Places in Los Angeles and the onetime home of such stars as Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe, was listed for sale Monday.

The vintage 1929 property has been owned since 2015 by the Los Angeles-based MWest Holdings real estate and investment firm, which did not publicly list the asking price.

In addition to Bogart and Monroe, former residents include fellow Hollywood screen stars William Powell and Errol Flynn, according to the seller.

In announcing the sale, MWest officials said they’ve “preserved the building’s old Hollywood ambiance while completing tasteful upgrades to the amenity spaces and unit interiors by merging vintage details with fine contemporary finishes.”

Significant improvements to the property under MWest’s ownership include renovations of the tower’s three rooftop decks as well as room upgrades, company officials said. The building’s large neon sign also was restored and serves as a prominent Hollywood landmark.
