Developer Frost/Chaddock is tweaking a plan for a trio of buildings known as Junction Gateway at Silverlake’s Sunset Junction to include a hotel.
City Planning documents show that the project, set to rise on separate lots within three blocks on Sunset Boulevard, would comprise 300 apartment units and 26,000 square feet of commercial or retail space.
While the proposal, detailed in a recent environmental review draft, has been public knowledge for some time, it now includes the possibility of a hotel, instead of an 84-unit apartment complex at 4000 Sunset Boulevard.
“After hearing positive feedback from the community over the past several months on this [boutique hotel] idea, Frost Chaddock has begun exploring a hotel more seriously and is excited to hear more input from stakeholders regarding this alternative,” a F/C representative told Curbed via email.
The site is currently occupied by a single-family house, an office building and warehouse. The structure that could rise in its place would have 94 rooms and 4,000 square feet of restaurant space. It would be four stories tall.
Plans for the other two buildings, at 4100 Sunset and 4311 Sunset, both residential, would not be affected if the developer goes ahead with the hotel option. One would be a five-story, 80,670-square-foot complex with 91 units, 10,000 square feet of restaurant space and 7,460 square feet of open space. The other, at 102,000 square feet, would have 122 residential units and various amenities such as a fitness center and community room.
For now, F/C will focus on comments on the original version of the plan, without the hotel. But, if locals express interest in the alternative, reps told Curbed, the firm will be receptive. [Curbed] — Cathaleen Chen
