Document Description
The project proposes to remove existing on-site uses and develop a mixed-use hotel, commercial and residential structure with subterranean parking, including 167 hotel rooms, 45 residential units, restaurants, retail, commercial uses, and other ancillary hotel and residential amenities. The project is designed to give the appearance of three separate but integrated structures within the site. The new building would be approximately 170,000 square feet in size and 12 levels, which would include two subterranean parking levels (basement levels B1 and B2), a lower ground level for vehicular circulation, a ground level with restaurants and commercial uses, and eight floors of hotel and residential uses, with a maximum height of approximately 111 feet and eight inches. The south building would primarily include the residential units and rooftop pool on the eighth floor, with commercial uses on the ground floor, and the central and east buildings would include the hotel and commercial uses. The project would include four signs integrated into the project’s design to promote the new project and emphasize the site as a gateway into the Sunset Strip and the City of West Hollywood. Three of these signs would include off-site signage. The proposed broad curved volume of the project would include a digital billboard off-site sign composed of graphic vertical LED strips. The digital billboard display would wrap around the highly visible southeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and North Harper Avenue. The two existing billboards on the project site would be replaced with a two-sided horizontal billboard on the rooftop of the east building and a two-sided vertical billboard between the east and central buildings. An additional vertical on-site sign would be located on the portion of the project fronting Harper Avenue. Vehicles would enter the project site from North Harper Avenue via a 20-foot driveway located at the southwest corner of the project site. The project would include 172 subterranean parking spaces incorporating an electronic stacked parking system. Residential parking would be fully separated from hotel and commercial parking. The project would provide 12 short-term and 23 long-term bicycle parking spaces for the residential uses and 20 short-term and 13 long-term spaces for the commercial uses.
