The Hollywood and Wilcox development, named for its location at the southeast corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue, calls for the construction of a 15-story, 260-unit apartment tower behind the historic Attie Building. The project, which is slated to replace four small commercial building, would also include 26 units of deed-restricted workforce housing (reserved for households earning 150 percent or less than the area median income), approximately 17,800 square feet of commercial uses, and parking for up to 420 vehicles on two subterranean levels and three podium levels.
GMPA Architects is designing the proposed development, which would rise approximately 160 feet in height. The building's profile would taper toward Hollywood Boulevard through a series of setbacks and terraces, which would be used to provide outdoor space for residents.
The Attie Building itself, a local landmark completed in the early 1930s, is slated to be preserved and restored as commercial space.
The project's developer, the LeFrak Organization, intends to complete construction over a roughly two-year period. A past environmental study pointed to an anticipated completion date in 2023.
Hollywood and Wilcox is the LeFrak Organization's second attempt to build a large mixed-use project in Hollywood. Earlier plans to redevelop a mid-century church at Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue with a multi-building tower complex were stymied when the property was designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
