The city says it will be “a positive addition to La Brea Avenue”

Plans to redevelop a West Hollywood site with a nine-story hotel building developed by CIM Group got the greenlight from the city’s planning commission.

The West Hollywood planning commission unanimously approved the project on Thursday, with commissioner John Altschul calling the hotel’s design “exceptional architecture,” WeHoville reports.

Designed by architect Neil Denari of NMDA, the structure at 1040 North La Brea Avenue would replace an auto repair shop with 85 hotel rooms, eight apartments, and 4,000 square feet of restaurant space.

The hotel’s exterior would be clad in a “metallic satin silvery grey” metal panels with accents of perforated metal and glazed ceramic tiles.

The building would carved out at the southeast corner, creating a fifth floor amenity deck, and parking for 103 cars would spread across three levels, with one level below ground.

The project went before the city’s design review subcommittee three times, with a number of tweaks being made, including the reduction of the number of hotel rooms from 91 to 85.

But the resulting design was lauded by city planners, who found the project “would be a positive addition to La Brea Avenue and to the City of West Hollywood.”

The development still needs approvals from the full West Hollywood City Council.
