Hollywood’s cityscape is quickly changing. It seems as if new hotels, apartments, and office buildings are springing up on every corner. This is especially true on and near Vine Street, an area in a state of perpetual construction. With so much happening, here are a few projects to watch in the upcoming years.
Hollywood Center 1720 Vine Street
Two large parking lots surrounding the Capitol Records Building will be redeveloped into residential units with ground-floor retail space and courtyards. Designed by Handel Architects, the $1-billion project will feature 1,005 units, including 133 units set aside for low-income senior living.
Hollywood Center, which will break ground in 2021, will have the largest on-site affordable housing component of any other development in the city.
Selma Wilcox Hotel 6421 Selma Avenue
Despite appeals from several groups, city council approved a proposal for a hotel on the corner of Selma and Wilcox. Designed by Relevant Group, the 8-story structure will feature a rooftop deck and will neighbor one of the developer’s previous projects, Dream Hotel.
Although Selma Wilcox Hotel has been referenced as the second phase of the Dream Hotel, it is unlikely that it will be Dream branded.
Citizen-News Building 1545 Wilcox Avenue
Declared a historic landmark by the city, the Citizen-News Building could become flexible event space featuring restaurants and outdoor dining areas. This proposal comes from developer Relevant Group, who would preserve the 1930s geometric motifs and decorative metal elements on the exterior.
The art déco structure would become a novelty venue for weddings, conferences, large-scale celebrations, and more if the proposal is approved.
