Steinberg Architects has designed the mid-rise structure with a grid-like window pattern and a facade of metal panels. A ground-level paseo along the eastern side of the building would both provide separation from the adjacent Mama Shelter hotel and access to an internal courtyard.
Construction of the mixed-use development would occur over approximately 23 months. An initial study identifies a groundbreaking date in the first quarter of 2017, and a completion date by the fourth quarter of 2018.
Five Chairs, through its parent company Hollywood International Regional Center, is behind a number of hotel proposals throughout neighborhood, including the recently-finished Dream Hollywood and the delayed Thompson Hotel along Wilcox Avenue.
The company had previously attempted to develop a Tommie Hotel a short distance south on Cahuenga Boulevard.
Tommie is billed as a micro-lifestyle hotel brand operated by Two Roads Hospitality.
