Hollywood's vertical expansion continues...

Another High-Rise for Hollywood

Yet another property near Hollywood's iconic Capitol Records Building is slated to give way for a tall mixed-use development.

Plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles earlier this month for a new residential-retail complex at 6220 West Yucca Street. The approximately one-acre property, currently occupied by a series of low-rise residential structures, would be redeveloped with a 21-story tower. The proposed building would include 277 residential units and 3,300 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Located at the southeast corner of Yucca Street and Argyle Avenue, the project is one of three high-rise developments planned for the same intersection.

Love that picture; it just screams "LA". Vacant lot, stucco apartment, palm trees, road that needs work, telephone poles, nobody on the street. Only the slope gives away that it's not in the valley.

This can't be a shit box.
This is kind of a high profile
area for views of Hollywood
from the freeway.
A lengthy footprint for a
mere 21 story project.

omg, right across the street from where I grew up, in those brick twin buildings....now turned into lofts and they closed off the cul-de-sac in front of those buildings where I used to live. Little Kenni playing with his bike and skateboard with the neighboring kids up and down Yucca. Yup, I went to Cheremoya Elementary.

Gosh, I still remember the Managers name, the lay out of the place.

Bold Developers Turning 21-Story Tower Into 32-Story Tower in the Heart of Hollywood

Last December, plans were revealed for a 21-story residential building at the corner of Ivar and Argyle in Hollywood. There was some concern that the same Hollywood Fault that was disrupting the neighboring Millennium Hollywood project might also derail this 277-unit tower, but everything soon appeared to proceed without incident. Maybe not for long though. According to Urbanize LA, the developers have heavily revised their original plans, beefing up the development substantially. In a move that almost seems directly geared towards courting controversy with anti-density zealots in Hollywood, the project has gone ahead and added 11 more floors and a second building. The proposed tower would now rise 368 feet, with 32 stories of housing, commercial space, and hotel rooms.[/img]



That's right, more hotel rooms in Hollywood. The project now includes 260 hotel rooms that will occupy floors six through 12, with a pool deck on the sixth floor. Floors 13 through 32 would have residential units and suites, floors two through five would be a parking structure with room for 456 cars, and the ground floor would be occupied by about 7,000 square feet of commercial space. A second building, sitting adjacent to the 32-story tower, would house additional apartments. That structure is planned to rise just six stories, and would also feature a landscaped plaza area.

In all, the project would bring 191 residential units to the Hollywood area—39 affordable units, 22 classified as very low-income, and 17 low-income—a fair number of desperately needed new Hollywood apartments for the non-rich.
