Environmental documents published by the Los Angeles Department City Planning offers up details about a new Hollywood hotel planned by local developer Five Chairs.

The proposed development, which is referred to as a Tommie Hotel, would rise from an approximately half-acre property at 6516-6526 W. Selma Avenue, replacing a surface parking lot.  Plans call for an eight-story, 95-foot tall building, featuring 212 guest room above a ground-level lounge and an underground parking garage.  Guests would also have access to on-site amenities such, including a rooftop pool and amenity deck

Steinberg Architects has designed the mid-rise structure with a grid-like window pattern and a facade of metal panels.  A ground-level paseo along the eastern side of the building would both provide separation from the adjacent Mama Shelter hotel and access to an internal courtyard.

Construction of the mixed-use development would occur over approximately 23 months.  An initial study identifies a groundbreaking date in the first quarter of 2017, and a completion date by the fourth quarter of 2018.

Five Chairs, through its parent company Hollywood International Regional Center, is behind a number of hotel proposals throughout neighborhood, including the recently-finished Dream Hollywood and the delayed Thompson Hotel along Wilcox Avenue.

The company had previously attempted to develop a Tommie Hotel a short distance south on Cahuenga Boulevard.

Tommie is billed as a micro-lifestyle hotel brand operated by Two Roads Hospitality.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
