Jefferson at Hollywood Ready to Displace Burger King

We always wondered what would replace the lowly Burger King sitting amongst the sea of parking lots across from Hollywood & Highland. Thanks to the Hollywood Chamber, now we know. The curiously named Jefferson at Hollywood located at the southeast corner of Highland and Yucca is in the middle of its approval process. As proposed, the project "will feature 270 residential apartments, about 8,500-sq.ft. of retail space, with 470 parking spaces to serve the development and an additional 285 spaces provided for public parking." Can someone with a shred more intelligence than us please explain the "Jefferson" part of this name equation?
