The owner of a 28,000-square-foot site in Pico Union is looking to redevelop the property as a hotel serving the L.A. Convention Center, per a motion introduced by 1st District Councilmember Gil Cedillo.

The property, located at 2268 W.

The motion has been referred to the City Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee.
