A landmark building near the Hollywood & Highland Center will become part of a mid-rise hotel complex, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, from applicant Denley Investment and Management Company, calls for the adaptive reuse of the seven-story office building at 6751 Hollywood Boulevard as a 94-room hotel.  The project would also include the construction of a 12-story building featuring 168 rooms, set to replace an empty commercial building at the back of the property.

City records indicate that the mid-rise structure at 6751 Hollywood began its life as a department store in the 1920s.  Its neighboring building is of a similar vintage.

Additional details regarding the proposed development are not immediately clear, based on its case filing with the Planning Department.

Denley is also behind plans for a mixed-use apartment building at the nearby intersection of Las Palmas Avenue and Yucca Street.
