A new environmental report published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers a first look at the 6220 West Yucca Street Project.

The proposed development, slated for a 1.16-acre property north of Hollywood Boulevard, would consist of a 32-story tower featuring a mixture of residential units, hotel rooms and ground-level commercial space.

According to designs by architecture firm Togawa Smith Martin, the tower would feature 180 residential flats on its upper levels.  A total of 66 one-bedroom units and 102 two-bedroom units would occupy floors 13 through 30, each ranging from 1,060 and 1,130 square feet in size.  The building's two uppermost levels would contain 12 suites, ranging between 1,950 to 2,100 square feet in floor area.

A second building, located at the corner of Yucca Street and Vista Del Mar Avenue, would stand six stories and include 11 one-bedroom dwellings in the midst of a landscaped courtyard.

Residents of 6220 Yucca would be serviced by on-site staff, including a valet and a doorman.  Additionally, tenants would have access to a variety of exclusive features, including a nearly 10,000-square-foot roof garden.

The project's hotel component, which would occupy floors 6 through 12 of the tower, includes 260 guest rooms and a variety of ancillary functions.  Guests would share a number of amenities with residents, including 6,200 square feet of restaurant space and an outdoor pool deck.

At street level, plans call for approximately 7,000 square feet of combined commercial floor area.  A partially subterannean level would include a 1,380-square-foot commercial stall accessible from Argyle Avenue.  An additional 5,600 square feet of retail and restaurant space would be situated at the entrance level along Yucca Street.

A total of 456 vehicular parking spaces and 210 bicycle parking spaces would be created for residents and hotel guests within five levels of garage space, including four above-grade and one below-ground.  Access would be provided from both the western and northern sides of the property, including a port-o-cochere on Yucca Street for hotel arrivals.

Elevation plans included in the project's initial study portray a modern 368-foot tower extending above a 12-story podium.  The residential and hotel floors would be glad in glass, while above-grade parking levels would be obscured with a combination of wire mesh and metal screens.

If built, the proposed high-rise would be among the tallest buildings in Hollywood.  Larger towers are also planned as part of the Crossroads Hollywood and Millennium Hollywood developments.

Construction of the 6220 West Yucca Street Project is currently on pace to begin in 2017, with full occupancy expected by 2021.

As currently proposed, the development will require several discretionary approvals from the city, including a zone change and a height district change.

The mixed-use complex is being developed by Champion Real Estate Company, a Los Angeles-based firm which specializes in infill developments.  The company is currently in predevelopment for two low-rise residential-retail projects further west near the Hollywood & Highland Center.

6220 Yucca is one of numerous high-rise developments planned near the iconic Capitol Records Building, including a 16-story Kimpton Hotel tower which broke ground earlier this year.
