Renderings Revealed for 37-Story Hotel Tower Planned Near the L.A. Convention Center
A project website offers a first glimpse of The Albany, a hotel tower planned just west of the Los Angeles Convention Center in Pico-Union.
The project, which comes from Los Angeles-based real estate investor Sandstone Properties, would replace a currently-vacant building located at the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Albany Street - immediately west of the Harbor Freeway. Plans call for a 37-story building which would feature 730 hotel rooms, 63,000 square feet of banquet space, and more than 800 parking stalls.
The Los Angeles office of architecture firm HOK is designing the proposed tower, which would rise 480 feet above street level. Renderings depict a contemporary glass tower fronting Pico, with tiered roof heights leading to a podium deck along the southern edge of the property. Renderings depict multiple levels of landscaped amenities - designed by Studio MLA - with a street-level plaza fronting Albany.
