New Look for Downtown’s Morrison Hotel Development

SHoP Architects redesigns the hotel and residential complex.


Hollywood-based developer Relevant Group has retooled its plans to revamp the historic Morrison Hotel as the centerpiece of mixed-use, high-rise complex.

The Morrison, built in 1914 at the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Hope Street, was made famous in the 1970s by The Doors, which used the four-story building as the cover art for its album Morrison Hotel.
