Developer Beny Alagem is constructing the 12-story building at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevard, creating 170 guest rooms with a collection of shops and restaurants.

Architecture firms Gensler, Perkins + Will and Pierre-Yves Rochon are designing the mid-rise development in the Streamline Moderne style, with a variety of high-quality finishes.
