A mid-century office building near the intersection of Sunset and Cahuenga Boulevards could make way for Hollywood's latest hotel development, according to plans submitted yesterday to the City of Los Angeles.
The proposed development, slated to replace a two-story commercial building at 6445 W. Sunset Boulevard, calls for the construction of a 13-story building featuring a 175-room hotel, 12,500 square feet of restaurant space, and a 72-car garage.
Archeon Group is designing the project, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary mid-rise structure standing approximately 173 feet in height, rising to a rooftop deck housing a 357-seat restaurant. A facade of glass and metal mesh screens would greet the building's Sunset Boulevard frontage, partially masking its three levels of above-grade parking.
City records list the developer of the project as two entities managed by executives with Highland Park-based developer NELA Homes.
Requested entitlements for the project include a zone change, a 20 percent reduction in required automobile parking, and a conditional use permit for on-site alcohol sales.
The proposed, if built, would join a half-dozen similar projects currently in development on surrounding properties.
A block south along Cahuenga Boulevard, completion is also nearing for the Hollywood Godfrey Hotel, which is being developed by Oxford Capital Group.
One block east on Sunset, the longtime site of a Jack-in-the-Box drive-through restaurant is slated to make way for a 21-story Art Deco hotel tower.
Besides hotels, a handful of office and housing developments are also in the pipeline for Hollywood - highlighted by Kilroy Realty's $450-million Netflix on Vine complex and a 14-story structure slated to replace a Staples office supply store at Sunset Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue.
