A years-ago-proposed hotel project in Hollywood—aka Hotelwood—is heating up again, with a draft environmental assessment out today for a citizenM hotel near Hollywood and Vine.

The 13-story hotel would sit just south of the Capitol Records building and hold 240 guest rooms. The Gensler-designed building is shown in renderings with colorful murals on both the front and side of the hotel, and a rooftop lounge area open to the public and hotel guests.

The citizenM on Vine would be the second in the city for the Amsterdam-based chain, which bills its vibe as “affordable luxury.” It has a hotel in the works at Fourth and Spring streets in Downtown.

The Hollywood project could begin construction as soon as 2020, with work wrapping up in 2022. The company’s Downtown location is slated to be complete in the second half of 2020, according to a release from citizenM.

Within just a two-block radius of this project, there are quite a few new hotels planned or under construction, including a 114-room hotel planned at Selma and Wilcox, next to the two-year-old Dream Hotel; a Thompson hotel right by the same intersection; and a 270-room hotel planned for the spot on Sunset and Cahuenga where a Jack in the Box sits now.
