According to the Hollywood Reporter, the boutique hotel chain Proper will soon be announced as the operator of the historic Case Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

The 90-year-old building, located at 1106 South Broadway, is slated to contain 148 guest rooms, a basement bar and new ground-floor restaurant withs sidewalk dining.  Due to 13-story tower's past uses as home to the Commercial Club of Southern California and the YWCA, the project will also offer unique amenities including an indoor swimming pool and a basketball court.

Designs for the adaptive reuse project come from architecture firm Omgivning, whose portfolio also includes the ongoing renovation of the former May Company flagship store at 801 South Broadway.  Renderings of the finished product portray the building's rooftop with new signage, a swimming pool and seating area with views of the Downtown skyline.

The Proper Hotel is being developed by the Kor Group, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm which has carried out condo conversions at numerous structures in both the Historic Core and the Downtown Arts District.  It will be the brand's fourth outpost, following previously announced locations in San Franciso, Hollywood and Austin, Texas.
