Construction is expected to take 22 months. Upon completion, the development will have 13 floors and a total of 175 rooms. Additionally, there will be 11,400 square feet of restaurant space including a rooftop restaurant.
Overview of Sunset Hotel design and initial development
Sunset Hotel in Los Angeles was designed by Archeon Group. It is pictured in images as a modern mid-rise building rising to a rooftop deck hosting a 357-seat restaurant. The building’s Sunset Boulevard exterior would be greeted by a facade made of glass and metal mesh screens, which would partially conceal its three levels of above-grade parking.
The project was initially proposed in late 2020 by NELA, an investment and development company. NELA requested a zone modification that had been granted by the City Planning Commission prior to last week’s City Council vote.
An organization called SAFER opposed the proposal. The organization is part of the Laborers International Union of North America Local 270. The group contended that exposure to formaldehyde might result from the hotel’s development.
