Not long after the city granted a development partnership conditional approval for its 99-key hotel in Koreatown, the project hit a snag.

It was a neighbor.

The resident, David Kim, filed an appeal citing parking, construction noise and shadows as the reasons, according to the Department of City Planning. The move that could delay the project, slated for 966 Dewey Avenue, up to three months.

The development team is a joint venture between La Villa Puente Limited Partnership and Maxsum Development LLC.

Maxsum is a Pasadena-based entity attached to a 20-story mixed-use tower on West 6th Street.

The unbranded hotel project will rise six stories in a neighborhood otherwise characterized by detached single-family homes. The site is less than a half-acre and would include 63 parking spots, according to the plans, which were announced last summer.

Efforts to reach the developers and Kim were not successful.

An appeal hearing is typically scheduled two to three months after it is filed, City Planning said.

City Planning granted the conditional approval on March 14, when a labor union representative also raised concerns about demolishing rent-stabilized units to make way for the hotel. Maxsum has said the existing homes are not occupied.
