Less than a quarter-mile west of La Brea Avenue, developer CIM Group is now in the midst of at a new hotel in West Adams.

The project, located at 5170 W. Adams Boulevard, replaces a trio of small commercial buildings.  Plans call for a three-story edifice featuring 43 guest rooms atop ground-floor retail space and a 31-car basement garage.

NMDA is designing the low-rise structure.  Architectural plans indicate that the building will include a central courtyard and a landscaped setback on its top floor.

The hotel development joins a slew of infill projects now being built by CIM Group along Adams Boulevard between La Brea and Fairfax Avenues, including multiple apartment and office projects.
