In 2016, J&K Plus Investments, LLC - an entity affiliated with San Gabriel-based developer Landwin Investments - secured approvals for the construction of two buildings at 1336 and 1347-1355 E. Colorado Boulevard.  Plans call for the construction of a seven-story, 375-key hotel with subterranean parking at the north parcel and a four-story edifice featuring roughly 49 residential units above 40,916 square feet of ground-floor retail space and subterranean parking on the south parcel.

Illustrations of the proposed project, which designed by Moule & Polyzoides, depict two low-rise structures using tiered building heights to match the scale of surrounding structures.

According to a staff report to the Pasadena Design Commission, the developer recently submitted an application to the City of Pasadena for a concept design review for 1336 and 1347 Colorado, triggering an informational presentation on the history of the proposed project.  A presentation on updated plans is anticipated at an unspecified date in the future.
