A cool, only-in-Los-Angeles landmark torn down for chain retail; someone get Joni Mitchell on the horn. The 39,000-square-foot building under construction at the northwest corner of Western Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard, once the site of the beloved Thai Hot Dog stand, will house a Petco and a Marshalls. The one-story project, from prolific developers CIM Group, should open in the fall, reports Park La Brea News. (CIM is busy just on this block; they're also behind the renovation of the historic Gershwin Apartments right next door to the Petco/Marshalls site.)
What everybody really wants to know is: where will shoppers park? The new complex will have rooftop parking for 125 cars in addition to 47 spaces in a nearby lot. It's also across from the Hollywood/Western Red Line stop, so look out for a lot more 20-pound bags of dog food riding the train.
