The redesign by Roschen Van Cleve Architects "will incorporate an existing historical building," and match the form of early 20th century Hollywood architecture, according to a project page the developer's website. Plans now call for a five-story, 144-room hotel with two levels of underground parking and amenities such as a ground-floor restaurant, a swimming pool and a fitness center.
The new design is starkly different than the previous vision presented in 2015, which called for a more contemporary six-story building. Roschen Van Cleve's version of the project takes cues from the existing one-story building on the property, which has operated as an automobile showroom since it was built in the mid 1920s. A historic resources survey conducted by the City of Los Angeles notes that these types of buildings were typified by over-scaled display windows.
