Local entrepreneur Adolfo Suaya has filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to construct a new hotel near the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The proposed development, slated for a .45-acre parking lot at 1717 N. Wilcox Avenue, would feature 134 guest rooms, a 2,500-square-foot ground-level restaurant, a rooftop bar and a 104-car parking garage.

A case filing from the Department of City Planning indicates that the project would require several discretionary approvals, including a zone change and a site plan review.  A budget and timeline are currently unclear.

A similar hotel development is planned for a property two blocks east along Hollywood Boulevard between Cherokee and Whitley Avenues.

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.
