Hipster tourists may soon have a new lodging option.

Plans submitted to the city call for the construction of an 89-room hotel at 1625 West Palo Alto Street in Westlake, near Echo Park. The site, which sits in the Historic Filipinotown District, is an empty lot.

According to case filings with City Planning, the 49,800-square-foot hotel would have four stories and 53 parking spaces. The current owner of the lot is an LLC called Morgan’s Legacy, an entity connected to the Hollywood Inn Express South, also located in Westlake. City records name the applicant as AJ Patel, the owner of the Hollywood Inn Express.

Patel’s LLC purchased the nearly 18,000-square-foot lot in April 2014 for $1.6 million, according to PropertyShark.

Patel could not be immediately reached for comment.

Nearby in Westlake, at 1000 West Temple Street, developer Geoff Palmer is planning a seven-story, 1.8 million-square-foot residential complex with 30,000 square feet of retail space.
