The Los Angeles City Council green-lighted a plan to replace a run-down Jack in the Box on Sunset Boulevard with a new Art Deco-inspired hotel.

The council granted approval Wednesday for developer R.D. Olson’s plans for the 21-story hotel Hollywood Ivar Gardens at the intersection of Sunset and Cahuenga boulevards.

The city rejected appeals from the nearby Los Angeles Film School, which had concerns over disruption to school events, and from labor group Unite Here Local 11, which cited the developer’s ties to a homosexual conversion-advocating Catholic group called Legatus.

Speaking at a meeting of the city’s Planning and Land Use Committee last week, Council member Mitch O’Farrell said that the discrimination allegations were not credible.

The developer first filed a request for zone change to make way for the project last year. The company then filed a revised development plan, which called for a two-floor addition to the 19-story structure, earlier this year.

The hotel is slated to have 275 guest rooms, 135 parking spaces, a rooftop pool and 1,900 square feet of retail space. Construction is expected to wrap up in 22 months. [Curbed] – Naiwen Tian
