Wyndham Hotel Group has announced an expansion of its Trademark Hotel collection to a new development on the outskirts of Downtown Los Angeles.

The latest outpost, known as the Bricks, will be located in a 1960s office building at 1543 W. Olympic Boulevard in the Pico Union neighborhood.  An entity known as Union & Grattan Properties, LLC is converting the six-story structure into 200 guest rooms with ground-floor retail space and other ancillary functions.

Renderings of the new hotel, which is being designed by Corbel Architects, show new LED ribbons adorning the building's mid-century exterior.  A rooftop area will be activated with a new amenity deck.

A timeline for the project is unclear, although the developer is pursuing construction permits for the conversion.

The Trademark hotels are billed as a "soft-branded" collection of three-to-four star hotels that operate autonomously, but with support from New Jersey-based Wyndham.

Six-Story Apartment Building to Rise on Westlake Parking Lot

Another project through the Transit Oriented Communities program.

A 9,300-square-foot surface parking lot in Westlake is slated for development, according to plans filed last week with the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 366 S. Loma Drive, could see the construction of a six-story building featuring 39 apartments - including affordable units - above a partially subterranean parking garage.
