Following a two-year renovation, the historic Los Angeles Railway Building in the Fashion District has been revived as a boutique Hoxton Hotel.
The 1920s landmark, located at the northeast corner of 11th Street and Broadway, received a full rehabilitation by developer Ennismore and its local partner BLVD Hospitality. The interior of the 10-story structure has been reformatted into 174 guest rooms with multiple food-and-beverage venues - including the restaurant Sibling Rival and a rooftop pool and bar.
The Beaux Arts office building was originally designed by Noerenberg & Johnson, and was reformatted for use as a hotel by Chicago-based GREC architects.
Ennismore acquired the former L.A. Railway building in 2015 for the reported sum of $30 million. Its Downtown Hoxton is just the fourth in the United States for the British hotel chain - following other locations in Portland, Brooklyn, and Chicago.
The Hoxton joins a 148-room Proper Hotel which is now under construction in a more than 90-year-old building at the same intersection. Other historic structures that have been, or are now in the process of being restored, include Onni Group's Western Pacific office tower and the former Herald-Examiner Building - which will become the new Southern California outpost of Arizona State University's journalism school.
