Project Description:

The Project proposes approximately 506,682 square feet of floor area in two hotel towers, providing up to 1,162 guestrooms and 13,145 square feet of retail/restaurant space on an approximately 1.22-acre development site. The Project Site currently contains a 27,800-square-foot two-story commercial building and surface parking lots, which are to be demolished. Three hotels, which are identified as Hotel A, Hotel B, and Hotel C, are to operate within the two proposed towers.

Proposed Hotel A and Hotel B would be developed in a single 42-story, 529-foot tower on the northeast corner of S. Figueroa Street and W. Pico Boulevard. The Hotel A/B Tower would include 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail/restaurant uses, up to 820 hotel guestrooms, hotel lobbies, guest amenities such as rooftop pool decks and a viewing deck, conference and meeting room spaces, signage, and parking for all three hotels. Proposed Hotel C would be developed in a 25-story, 326-foot tower located on the northwest corner of W. Pico Boulevard and S. Flower Street. The Hotel C Tower would include a hotel lobby, 2,145 square feet of ground-floor commercial retail/restaurant uses, up to 342 guestrooms, and guest amenities such as a landscaped rooftop pool deck. The approximate floor area ratio (FAR) for the Project is 9.9:1.

A City-initiated sign district would also be implemented on the Project Site and on certain surrounding parcels along S. Figueroa Street, W. Pico Boulevard, and S. Flower Street.
