Mapped: Hollywood’s booming development landscape

When complete, these 30-plus projects will change the neighborhood

View as Map
Thousands of new apartments and condos are in the pipeline for Hollywood. On Hollywood Boulevard, Eastown opened in 2014.

As anyone who moves regularly through the neighborhood already knows, Hollywood is changing daily. New hotels, offices, and apartments are rapidly changing the landscape.

More than 1,200 hotel rooms were added to a large section of Hollywood from 2001 to 2016, and, in a similar time period, residential development increased 261 percent. It’s estimated that approximately 4,000 more units in the works. On top of all of that, a report prepared for the Hollywood Property Owners Alliance and Central Hollywood Coalition predicts that office space will balloon by 67 percent by 2021.

It’s daunting to keep up with what is planned. To help keep tabs, this map tracks more than 30 projects throughout Hollywood, from its bustling center to its fringes.

Crossroads of the World

Harridge Development Group’s hugely transformative plans for the properties surrounding the Crossroads of the World complex will include hundreds of units of housing, a 308-room hotel, and 190,00 square feet of commercial space.

The original Tudor-style Crossroads buildings themselves will be restored and reused, but otherwise unchanged. The project will also incorporate the newly landmarked former home of The Hollywood Reporter.

The project was approved by the Los Angeles City Council in January, but in February, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation sued the city of LA to stall or halt the project.

The retail complex had been in limbo since 2014, assailed by lawsuits over the complex’s height from the La Mirada Neighborhood Association. But late last year, the Target beat its legal challenges. In March, the company secured the permits from the city it needed to get work underway on the project. Pre-construction has been happening on the site since then, but no formal construction restart date has been announced.

The completed project will offer approximately 335,000 square feet of office space and 13,000 square feet of retail space.
