Laker reserve guard Sasha Vujacic has purchased a unit at the W Hollywood Residences.

The condominium, in the $350-million development at the landmark intersection of Hollywood and Vine, has two bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in about 2,100 square feet. The purchase price was not available but a comparable unit is listed at $2.1 million.

His west-facing condo has views of Century City, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. He will be among the first owners to move into the building when the W Hollywood Hotel and Residences opens in mid-January.

Vujacic, 25, should feel right at home. He grew up living in a condo, although perhaps not this posh. Amenities for the 143 residential units include concierge service, a rooftop fitness facility, a residents-only rooftop lap pool, valet and self parking, housekeeping services, and pet walking, feeding and grooming. The 15-story building has a restaurant, a nightclub and shops, as well as 305 hotel rooms.

The shooting guard joined the Lakers in 2004 and last year signed a three-year deal worth $15 million.

Maranda Blanton, sales manager for the W Hollywood Residences, handled the transaction.
