Updated: 4:30 p.m., March 16: The sun is just beginning to rise on Sunset Junction.
Developer Timberlane Partners wants to open a 54-key hotel in Silver Lake, which will be the second hotel planned for the fast-developing neighborhood.
The firm will repurpose an existing motel on the site, formerly used as long long-term rentals, Eastsider reported. The tenants “had to move out,” one of them told Eastsider. Moving expenses were paid.
Venice-based Electric Bowery is designing the hotel, which will include a restaurant.
Elsewhere along Sunset Junction, Frost/Chaddock is finally moving forward on plans to build a trio of buildings. The four-story, 94-key hotel portion is expected to rise at 4000 Sunset Boulevard, pending city approval.
That too will replace an outdated motel, dubbed by locals as the Bates Motel for its location on Sunset Boulevard and Bates Avenue. The shuttered, white-washed hotel was formerly known as the Sunset Pacific Motel.
