A 102-year-old building in the Arts District is poised for major changes, according to plans filed earlier today with the City of Los Angeles.

1711 Lincoln - a Beverly Hills-based limited liability company - has submitted an application to add approximately 53,000 square feet of new floor area to a property at 2057 E. 7th Street.  The project site, which encompasses a three-story brick structure and an adjoining parking lot, is slated for a new hotel, as well as event space, a rooftop pool deck, and other ancillary functions.

Additional details about the proposed hotel are currently unclear, although the project would include more than 50 guest rooms.

The development site is surrounded by a series of ground-up and adaptive reuse projects, including the AMP Lofts, an under-construction project that wraps around the property.  Across the street, a former Ford Factory has been restored as office space, and will soon become the new Los Angeles area home of Warner Music Group.

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.
