Document Description
PPD Gower I, LLC, the Project Applicant, proposes to develop the Columbia Square Project in the Hollywood community of the City of Los Angeles. The 4.68 acre project site is generally bound by Selma Ave to the north, Gower Street to the east, Sunset Boulevard to the south, and El Centro Ave to the west. The project would provide 400 residential units, a 125 room hotel, ~380,000 sf of office space, and 41,300 sf of retail and restaurant/bar uses (including restaurant/bar uses in the hotel). Included within these project uses is ~105,510 sf of the 136,233 sf Columbia Square Complex that would be rehabilitated to provide for ~91,110 sf of office uses and 14,400 sf of retail and restaurant/bar uses. In addition, a substantial part of the project would include landscaped courtyards and pathways and other open space features connecting the various proposed uses that would establish a more pedestrian-oriented environment within the project vicinity. The project would also include a 9 level parking facility (including 3 subterranean levels) with ~2,004 parking spaces. Construction of the project would occur over ~48 months from the start of grading and excavation activities to the receipt of certificates of occupancy. Approximately 190,000 cubic yards of soil would be exported.
