I grew up in that area (near Roscoe and Winnetka). There are -- or were -- quite a few Polynesian-style apartment buildings in the West Valley. Sadly, as is the case everywhere, too many of them have been remodeled beyond all recognition over the years, and the Northridge earthquake in 1994 took out a lot of others. Still, if you look closely you'll find some that have survived reasonably intact.
I'm heading up there this weekend to spend Christmas with my parents. If I have time I'll grab the camera and go tiki hunting.
