An initial study published this month by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning details a proposal from developer HQ Creative's plans to bring more office space to Hollywood.
The project, which was submitted in May 2021 to the Planning Department for review, would rise from a currently vacant lot located at 711 N. Lillian Way - a short walk north from Melrose Avenue. Plans call for the construction of a three-story edifice featuring 30,357 square feet of offices above subterranean parking for 80 vehicles.
ShubinDonaldson is designing the contemporary low-rise structure, which would be highlighted by a large rooftop amenity deck and a three-level atrium. Proposed exterior finishes include concrete, glass, and painted cement plaster.
Although the initial study does not state a precise timeline, findings included with the project's entitlement package point to a construction schedule occurring between 2022 and 2023.
HQ Creative, which brands itself as a premier developer of upscale creative office space, has built a handful of similar small-scale projects throughout the Los Angeles area. The company's portfolio also includes the Mayumi, a motel-turned-extended-stay apartments in Culver City.
The Lillian Way project is the latest in a series of small and mid-sized office buildings planned near Hollywood's border with Hancock Park, a neighborhood which sits in close proximity to the studios which flank Santa Monica Boulevard. Five blocks west at Melrose and Seward Street, BARDAS Investment Group is planning a larger 68,000-square-foot development.
