The Beverly Hills Planning Commission has approved plans for a new boutique hotel just south of Wilshire Boulevard.

The Lasky Hotel, slated for a property at 140 South Lasky Drive, would consist of a four-story building featuring 66 guest rooms in addition to ground-floor retail space, a rooftop pool deck, and three levels of basement parking.  The project would replace the existing Maison 140 Hotel - a converted mansion which dates to the 1930s - as well as an adjacent parking lot.

Designed by Kollin Altomare Architects, the project is intended as a "small-scale version of the grand European hotel," with both Mid-Century Modern and Art Deco features.  Plans call for a port-cochere to be located at ground-level, as well as an interior courtyard with outdoor dining at the building's center.

The hotel is being developed by Ingram Holdings Ltd., the owners of the existing Maison 140 Hotel.

A construction timeline for the project has not been announced.

The Lasky Hotel would rise near the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards, where a $200-million Waldorf Astoria hotel was completed in 2017.  Other ongoing projects in the surrounding area include a proposed 23-story condo tower adjacent to the Beverly Hilton - potentially the tallest building in Beverly Hills - and a hotel and residential complex planned next to the Los Angeles Club.
