A year after breaking ground at the intersection of 4th and Spring Streets, construction has moved to the next phase at the citizenM Los Angeles Downtown hotel.

The project - a joint venture between the Dutch hotel chain and local partner BLVD Hospitality - will consist of an 11-story structure featuring 315 guest rooms.


The Gensler-designed structure, which will eventually stand 130 feet in height, will be composed of prefabricated modular units above a concrete podium.  Crews began installing the units at the beginning of April.

The project is one of three hotel developments now in planning at the intersection of 4th and Spring Streets, joining the under-construction Cambria development at 419 S. Spring Street and the proposed conversion of the Continental Building.

Amsterdam-based citizenM is also planning a 14-story hotel near Hollywood and Vine.

Los Angeles-based BLVD Hospitality also developed the Arts District's Soho Warehouse and the recently-completed Hoxton Hotel in the Fashion District.
