A series of small residential buildings in Koreatown may give way for a new hotel, per a filing today with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The aproximately .41-acre site, located at 966 S. Dewey Avenue, is slated for a new building featuring 99 guest rooms and 63 parking spaces.  Plans also call for ancillary functions such as a fitness room and a recreation deck on the second floor.

A case filing lists the project's applicant as La Villa Puente.  It is respresented by MaxSum Development, a Beverly Hills-based firm that is also behind proposals for mixed-use buildings in the Arts District.

Additional details about the project are currently unclear.

The subject property is located one block west of Catalina Street, where a pair of mixed-use projects are now rising on opposite sides of Olympic Boulevard.
