Redevelopment is in the works for an early 20th century motel near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Hollywood, according to an application submitted earlier this year to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
Stay Hotels Group, owner of the two-story Budget Inn at 6830 Sunset Boulevard, is seeking to raze the 107-year-old building to make way for a new six-story building containing 24 guest rooms above a 32-car automated parking garage. The project would consist almost entirely of pod-style shared rooms with 8-to-10 beds per units, and communal restrooms located on each floor. As a result, the building would have capacity for more than 200 guests.
The Code Solution is designing the the hotel, which would be comprised of Type III construction above a Type I-A base. Renderings depict a contemporary low-rise structure, clad with a combination of perforated metal panels, wood siding, and concrete. A third-floor setback along northern property line would be used to create a pool and amenity deck for use by guests. Additional open space would be provided on a rooftop deck.
Despite the property's longtime use as a motel, the proposed development will require the approval of a conditional use permit to allow the construction of a hotel within 500 feet of a residential zone.
Stay Hotels Group is also connected to a four-story, 81-room hotel development now under construction in Boyle Heights.
The Hollywood project would rise a few blocks east of the more the site of Harridge Development Group's proposed Crossroads Hollywood complex, which would also include a hotel.
