The site of Hancock Park Terrace was the former Black-Foxe School, an all boys military school. In 1972, the complex was originally built as apartment buildings. The complex was designed by local architect Ragnar Qvale, who also designed the Wilshire Country Club facility, and developed by Ray Rosendahl. By 1977 all units were converted to condominiums.
