A late 1950s office building in Koreatown is being converted to a hotel, permit filings with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety show.

In 2022, Los Angeles Planning officials approved the adaptive reuse of a four-story building located at 3434 W. 6th Street into a 52-room hotel, with upper levels becoming guest rooms and at-grade parking become restaurant space. Additional restaurant and bar space is being built directly east of the hotel on what is now a surface parking lot.

While plans call for providing five parking spaces on-site (below the new build restaurant), most parking would be provided through leased spaces at an off-site garage located at 550 S. Kenmore Avenue.

City records list the project applicant and property owners as Moon Han Bae of  M and C Property Management, LLC. The project architect is listed as Architecture Studio MA, Inc.

The site, located at the southeast corner of 6th Street and Kenmore Avenue, sits midway between the Wilshire/Vermont and Wilshire/Normandie subway stations, and across the street from Chapman Plaza.
