A Boutique hotel is being proposed for the corner of 5th and Colorado in Santa Monica California squeezed onto a lot just over 40 feet wide. The Santa Monica Architectural Review Board reviewed a proposal for a hotel to be built in a narrow space between two existing residential buildings along Colorado Avenue, between 5th and 6th Street. The lot is the former site of the Angels Attic dollhouse museum and is only 41.75 ft wide. The proposed project would be eight stories high with 74 guest rooms, a ground floor restaurant, outdoor seating area, lobby, guest drop-off area, rooftop bar and two subterranean levels with a fitness area and business center. Howard Laks Architects, the firm designing the building, came up with an angled-balcony design. Rooms on the north and south sides of the building will have alternating, diagonal balconies designed to maximize views of Downtown Santa Monica, Santa Monica Pier, Marina Del Rey and Catalina Island on a clear day. The project will now proceed to the Planning Commission and if approved will return to the ARB for a final review.
