The development that would remake the area around Hollywood’s old-timey Crossroads of the World is moving forward, and its plans have been tweaked once more.

A public hearing notice posted online Tuesday shows Harridge Development Group will now preserve and incorporate the newly landmarked The Hollywood Reporter building into its plans to erect hundreds of units of housing, a 308-room hotel, and 190,00 square feet of commercial space.

In a statement, Harridge says it’s “excited that Crossroads Hollywood is at this important milestone.”

The notice is for the project’s first big hearing before the city planning department, set for May 15.

Prior to the landmarking, the plan was to demolish the THR building, which was home to the magazine for more 50 years.

The notice reveals another change: Harridge no longer wants to realign Las Palmas Avenue between Selma Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. (Earlier plans had called for the street to be altered to cut through the block more diagonally.)

Additionally, the development will include more affordable residential units: 105 instead of 84. In total, the project will hold 950 apartments and condos.
