An initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers a first glimpse of the redesigned Hollywood & Gower development.

6104 Hollywood, LLC - a subsidiary of Colorado-based UDR, Inc. - has proposed the construction of a mixed-use tower on a parking lot at Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street, at the eastern edge of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  The project would consist of a 23-story building, featuring 220 apartments above nearly 4,600 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial space.  The tower would also include parking for 285 vehicles and 250 bicycles in a garage with four above-grade floors and one subeterranenan level.

Plans call for a mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom dwellings, served by communal spaces such as a fitness center, a dog run, and a social lounge.  Hollywood & Gower would also include outdoor amenity decks featuring a swimming pool and a barbeque area atop the building's roof and podium.

The project is being designed by HKS Architects, a global firm best known locally for its work on the $2.6-billion Los Angeles Rams stadium in Inglewood.  At Hollywood & Gower, HKS has created a modern 262-foot tall structure which would be encased within a metal exoskeleton.  Cut outs along the eastern and western sides of the project site would provide green space and outdoor seating for ground-level commercial tenants.

Construction of Hollywood & Gower is expected to occur over approximately 24 months.  A groundbreaking is forecasted for the third quarter of 2020, with completion anticipated by the second quarter of 2023.

The project occupies a prominent site in an evolving area of Hollywood, located one block east of the Blvd 6200 development and a proposed 14-story mixed-use building.  To the south, Kilroy Realty has revived the historic Columbia Square complex with creative offices and a 20-story residential and hotel tower.

Plans for a high-rise development at 6100 Hollywood Boulevard date back more than a decade, when Houston-based Hanover Company initially proposed a 20-story building on the site.  The proposal stalled following a lawsuit which successfully challenged the project's approvals.
