With completion nearing for the Dream Hollywood, plans are now in the works for a second phase of the development.

Last week, Hollywood International Regional Center (HIRC) filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to build a new wing of the hotel on an adjacent L-shaped site, featuring 114 guest rooms, a parking garage and several food and beverage venues.  The project would consist of an eight-story structure, created by adding seven floors above an existing one-story retail building at Selma and Wilcox Avenues.

According to a case filing from the Department of City Planning, the proposed development will require several discretionary approvals, including a zone change and a site plan review.  Further details about the project are currently unavailable.

The $50-million first phase of the Dream Hotel, which is nearing completion at 6417 Selma Avenue, features 182 guest rooms and a number of food and beverage venues.

Similar mid-rise hotels are also in the planning stages on nearby properties.  South on Wilcox Avenue, HIRC is development a 12-story Thompson Hotel.   East on Selma Avenue, a 200-room establishment is proposed for a parking lot which abuts the recently opened Mama Shelter.
