Campaign video reveals Robert A.M. Stern tower Beny Alagem is trying to entitle

Beverly Hilton owner wants project on ballot

A campaign video by Beny Alagem’s “Beverly Hills Garden & Open Space Initiative” reveals a rendering of the hotelier’s proposed high-rise tower, which would be the first skyscraper in Beverly Hills at 375 feet. 

The Beverly Hilton owner wants to combine two already-approved condo projects near the under-construction Waldorf Astoria hotel into one 26-story tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern. Next to the tower, there would be a garden and a Tavern-on-the-Green-style restaurant.

Alagem has launched the campaign to get the project entitled. It is not currently zoned for its height. The proposed tower is almost twice as high as Beverly Hills’ current tallest building, the Regent, which is 164 feet.

“The first step is to gather enough signatures to put the initiative on the November 2016 ballot,” the video says.

The proposal would amend the Beverly Hilton Revitalization Plan, which was approved by the Beverly Hills City Council in 2008. — Hannah Miet
