The city of Los Angeles California Planning Commission approved a proposal by developer Napa Industries LLC to build a new hotel in the North Hollywood area. The project would be located on the northwest corner of Lankershim Blvd and Hesby Street which would include a 7-story building with 125 guestrooms, 9,350 square feet of retail, a restaurant and an 85 space garage. AXIS/GFA is designing the project which is a contemporary podium-type structure clad in a combination of metal, cement, and stucco. Plans call for a V-shaped footprint above street level, wrapping a rear-facing loading dock and parking area. A conference facility, a fitness center, and a rooftop pool deck are also proposed.
