After nearly one year of construction, exterior work is in full swing for Hollywood's Argyle Hotel.

Located at 1800 N. Argyle Avenue, the project consists of a 16-story hotel featuring 220 guest rooms, restaurant space, and ancillary features such as meeting rooms, a swimming pool and a parking garage.

The 184-foot tall building is being designed by San Diego-based ACRM Architects and developed by the Robert Green Co.  City records indicate that San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels has signed on to operate the hotel.

The project is one of three high-rise developments at the intersection of Argyle and Yucca Street, including an 18-story apartment tower rising adjacent to the Capitol Records Building, and a 32-story tower planned across the street.
