San Gabriel developer plans 100-room hotel in South Westlake

A 100-key hotel could replace a low-level retail structure in South Westlake, city documents show.

A developer filed plans Wednesday for the six-story hotel, at 2005 West James M. Wood Boulevard. While no applicant was named on the report, PropertyShark shows that the site is owned by Infinitely Group, an entity linked to San Gabriel resident Tauan Chen.

Infinity acquired the property for $3.3 million in early 2016.

The project, which would have two levels of basement parking, would require a general plan amendment from highway oriented commercial to community commercial, as well as a vesting zone change and height district change. This means that it would be subject to the two-year development moratorium imposed by Measure S, should the ballot initiative pass in March.

The retail structure on the site, which has been home to a Coin Laundry, spans 8,042 square feet.

The plans are just the latest in Westlake’s ongoing renaissance. Just three blocks north, a local plastic surgeon is planning to redevelop an Art Deco-style 14-story medical office building into a 220-room hotel and apartment complex with 478 units, The Real Deal reported in August.

At 1247 West 7th Street, a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer also recently filed plans for a 304-unit tower.
