The owner of a 28,000-square-foot site in Pico Union is looking to redevelop the property as a hotel serving the L.A. Convention Center, per a motion introduced by 1st District Councilmember Gil Cedillo.

The property, located at 2268 W. Pico Boulevard, is currently improved with a retail building and an adjoining surface parking lot.  The owner has been presented with an opportunity to construct a "well-known and reputable" 125-key hotel on the site, which would feature ground-floor restaurant and meeting space.

Cedillo has moved to initiate a General Plan Amendment, a zone change and a height district change that would allow for the development to move forward.

The motion has been referred to the City Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee.

Checking in on the Slow-Moving 1133 Hope Condo Tower

The 28-story tower broke ground in March 2017.

Slowly but surely, the concrete frame of 1133 Hope Street rises in South Park. The 28-story tower, located just east of Metro's Pico Station, will feature 200 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and a parking podium upon completion.  Plans for the mixed-use project dated back to 2005, when the Canadian development firm Amacon initially submitted plans for a 35-story building on the site.
