Last October, vague plans emerged for a 12-story hotel on a half-acre property located just north of Sunset Boulevard. Now, a document from the Central Hollywood Neighborhood Council has finally revealed details about the once mysterious development.
According to the agenda for an upcoming meeting of the Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee, the proposed mid-rise structure at 1523 Wilcox Avenue would feature 220 guest rooms and multiple food and beverage venues. Plans filed with the City of Los Angeles call for a 13,000-square-foot restaurant and bar which would be attached to the building's lobby. Other amenities would include a second-floor pool and bar, a penthouse lounge, a rooftop deck and underground parking accommodations for up to 125 vehicles.
Situated midway between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards, 1523 Wilcox Avenue would provide guests with easy access to a variety of tourist attractions. Not unexpectedly, it is one of several hotel projects currently planned or underway on surrounding blocks. North on Selma Avenue, construction kicked off last year for the highly-anticipated Dream Hollywood. To the south, a Jack in the Box restaurant near Amoeba Music is also expected to give way for a hotel.
