Just weeks after breaking ground on its first Los Angeles area hotel at 4th and Spring Streets, citizenM is moving forward with plans for a second establishment in Hollywood.
The proposed hotel, slated for a .28-acre site at 1718 N. Vine Street, calls for replacing a one-story restaurant with a 13-story building featuring 240 guest rooms - ranging between 152 and 185 square feet in size - and amenities such as a gym, a rooftop bar, and a lounge. Plans also call for 79 automobile parking spaces, which would be located in a fully automated structure spanning five levels below ground.
Designed by Gensler, the contemporary mid-rise structure would stand 185 feet in height, and is of a similar aesthetic to other citizenM hotels. Renderings depict windows along the building's southern, western, and eastern property lines, and murals displayed prominently on its upper floors.
According to the project's draft environmental impact report, construction of the citizenM at Hollywood and Vine is anticipated to occur over approximately 21 months, beginning in 2020 and concluding by 2022. This period would overlap with the construction of the Dutch chain's 11-story, 315-room hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, which is expected to open in the second half of 2020.
The project site was purchased by citizenM in 2016 for a reported sum of $7.5 million.
The citizenM hotel neighbors two large parking lots surrounding the Capitol Records Building, where a $1-billion development featuring over 1,000 residential units and multiple high-rise structures is planned. It also sits directly across the street from the former Redbury Hotel, which recently opened as the h Club Los Angeles.
