The project, which is being developed by Mayer Corp., is now rising at the northeast corner of San Pablo and Alcazar Streets. Plans call for a five-story building that will feature 200 guest rooms, 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and a roughly 18,000-square-foot conference center.
AHT Architects is designing the contemporary hotel, which will feature a pool deck and a 310-car parking garage.
The hotel is rising next-door to a currently vacant site which is slated for the next phase of student housing at the USC Health Sciences Campus. The proposed six-story, 95-unit building at 1630 San Pablo Street was approved earlier this year.
The centerpiece of the surrounding L.A. County + USC Medical Center - the historic General Hospital Building - was the focus of a recent action by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which has initiated a study of the potential adaptive reuse of the 19-story Art Deco landmark.
