Although still rough around the edges, the blocks east of Hollywood/Vine Station have suddenly become a breeding ground for hotel developments. Earlier this year, the West Coast's first Dream Hotel location broke ground on Selma Avenue. Soon, it will be joined by another hospitality project a half-block south.
As first reported by Bisnow, an unspecified developer has recently leased a mid-block parcel on Cahuenga Boulevard with the intent of constructing a boutique hotel. Plans submitted to the Department of Building and Safety call for a seven-story structure at 1525 North Cahuenga Boulevard, featuring 55 guest rooms and a rooftop pool deck. The project would also include a bar and restaurant space.
In addition to the Dream Hollywood, the boutique hotel is joined by two other large-scale developments south of Sunset Boulevard. Last month, Kilroy Realty unveiled plans for a $300 million mixed-use campus, slated for a city block in-between Vine Street and Cahuenga Boulevard. Directly across the street, a partnership between Florida-based Rescore and Cal-Coast Development proposes a similar complex, consisting of 300 apartments and 18,000 square feet of office space.
