This Hollywood hotel will be ready for the sun.

A new hotel project known as the Chaplin would contain 93 rooms, ground-floor restaurants and an outdoor terrace. The development at 7225 W. Sunset Boulevard was proposed by the Encino-based real estate investor Joseph Geoula. 

But the most notable feature of the 11-story building, designed by Roschen Van Cleve Architects, would be multiple sheathes of solar panels on the facade, according to new renderings spotted by Urbanize.

Geoula, operating under the entity 7219-7225 West Sunset LLC, acquired the site in 2005, property records show. It’s currently occupied by a 5,500-square-foot retail storefront.

The developer first filed plans for the project in February. [Urbanize] — Cathaleen Chen
