A shuttered restaurant in Woodland Hills could be razed to make way for a boutique hotel.

On Thursday, the Woodland Hills-Warner Center Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee will view a courtesy presentation from the developer of the project, which would rise from a 1.66-acre site at 20401 W. Ventura Boulevard.  Plans call for an eight-story, 112-foot tall building featuring 201 guest rooms, 8,200 square feet of banquet space and a 3,200-square-foot ground-level restaurant.  The proposal also includes a pool deck, various guest amenities and foor levels of subterranean parking.

The property, most recently home to Minatto Seafood Buffet, was purchased in September 2016 by 20401 Ventura Blvd LP, a firm based out of Van Nuys.

Additional details about the proposed development are currently unclear.

The project has not been filed with the City of Los Angeles.
