While Madrone marks the western edge of Hollywood development, there's action on the eastern side too. Developer The Clarett Group placed a full-page ad in a recent edition of the tourist magazine Discover Hollywood, and under the banner of "Hollywood's Next Golden Era," Clarett announces progress on its two LA projects: the 10-story office-space addition to Hollywood Boulevard's Pantages Theatre and the giant mixed-used development just across the street known as Blvd6200.
The Pantages stack-on--which was how the building was originally envisioned--is seeking entitlement, while Blvd6200 is movin' on up at a quicker clip. Groundbreaking is declared for this fall (Clarett didn't return calls on a more specific timeline), and if all goes as planned, that crusty parking lot will morph into 1,014 new apartment units, 28 live/work units,175,000 square feet of commercial-retail space, and 12,000 square feet of public plazas for meeting and greeting.
