A Guide to the Near-Future of the Hollywood Skyline

View as Map

Hot on the heels of yesterday's juicy view of upcoming additions to Downtown LA's skyline, we have a look today at the near-future of hot-as-hell Hollywood (once again courtesy of Kelvin Cheng). In this visualization, Hollywood projects are in the foreground in red, the 18-story 3033 Wilshire in Koreatown is in green, and Downtown's projects are in the background. There isn't anything under construction in Hollywood that's as tall as what's to be found Downtown, and won't be—for now—until the developers of the two-tower Millennium Hollywood project figure out how to deal with the nearby Hollywood Fault. So the future of the biggest parcels, adjacent to the Capitol Records Building, remains uncertain, but a smaller tower was just announced on the same block, and even the modest towers soon-to-be-, or already under-, construction look like they'll be transformative for the neighborhood. Below you'll find a map guide to all the buildings on the visualization.

1. Sunset Bronson/ICON

Sunset Boulevard & North Van Ness Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90028

The 14-story, Gensler-designed office tower is set to break ground in February 2015. Previously known simply as Sunset Bronson, it was recently renamed Icon at Sunset Bronson Studios.

2. 5837 Sunset/Metropolitan Hollywood

5837 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90028

This long-stalled, six-story, 79-unit project finally broke ground in summer 2014.

3. Hotel Argyle

Copy Link
1800 Argyle Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Kimpton Hotels helped revive a long-languishing plan for a 16-story tower at Argyle and Hollywood and plans on a hotel with 225 rooms, restaurant space, and lots and lots of parking. It's unclear if this Coe Architecture rendering represents the current design.

4. 6220 Yucca

Copy Link
6220 Yucca Street
Los Angeles, CA 90028

There's a 21-story mixed-use residential tower on the way at the very happening corner of Yucca and Argyle.

5. Columbia Square

Copy Link
6121 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Half of the units at the posh, 20-story Residences at Columbia Square will be super-fancy, fully-furnished, extended-stay hotel rooms designed by maximalist Kelly Wearstler; the architecture is by Rios Clementi Hale.

6. Palladium Residences

Copy Link
6215 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028

One of the most exciting developments coming to Hollywood, two residential towers will flank the historic Hollywood Palladium concert venue. The development will also include a restoration for the 1940s venue.

7. Vine and Selma/The Camden

Copy Link
1540 Vine Street
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Hollywood's seven-story, 287-unit mixed-user The Camden at Selma and Vine was reignited in 2013 after a years-long hiatus. The new renderings do away with the ridiculous swooping crowns that looked dated even back when it was revealed in 2006.

8. 1601 Vine

Copy Link
1601 Vine Street
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Located on top of the old Molly's Burgers, this office tower will be eight stories high with five levels of underground parking.

9. Academy Square

Copy Link
Vine Street & De Longpre Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90028

The massive, block-sized Academy Square campus will have creative office space, retail and restaurants, and a 23-story tower that could possibly have up to 100 hotel rooms (if it doesn't go purely residential).

10. Dream Hollywood/6417 Selma

Copy Link
6417 Selma Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Dream Hotels is working on its first West Coast outpost on Selma right now; it'll have 182 rooms and design by Killefer Flammang.
