Travelers' options for a hotel in Hollywood seem to be growing by the day, with a bunch of new projects planned, under construction, or recently opened (like the hip, non-exclusive Mama Shelter) across the 'hood. Add one more to the list, though: Urbanize LA hears (via Bisnow) that stylish microunit, Millenial-targeting hotelier citizenM has dropped $7.5 million on a lot north of Hollywood and Vine.
The lot measures .27 acres and has a stubby commercial building on it. The spot is also right across the street from the cool Redbury hotel and right up against the controversial proposed Millennium Hollywood project; it's also pretty close to the Red Line's Hollywood/Vine station.
The Amsterdam-based citizenM brand has hotels in popular European destinations (London, Paris, Amsterdam), plus two in New York (Times Square and underway in the Bowery).
