AJ Khair’s planned hotel at 544 S. Pacific Avenue

AJ Khair has a vision for a boutique hotel next to San Pedro’s Warner Grand Theater.

The West Hollywood development firm revealed plans for the 80-room hotel, which would rise on a vacant lot at 544 S. Pacific Avenue, according to Curbed.

The seven-story is being designed by Axis/GFA Architecture + Design, incorporating elements from the neighboring Art Deco theater, a Historic-Cultural Landmark that opened in 1931. That includes a vertical neon sign similar to the one outside the theater. AJ Khair is also planning a rooftop deck and bar area, and a 2,000-square-foot restaurant at the hotel.

Property records show that AJ Khair bought the 12,500-square-foot lot in March for $1.6 million.

Los Angeles has seen a boom in hotel development. At midyear, there were 37 hotels with 5,631 rooms under construction across the city.

If built, the hotel would be a part of a wave of development in San Pedro over the last few years. This year in particular has seen some notable trades and development proposals.

Los Angeles tapped a team led by Richman Group to redevelop the 21-acre Rancho San Pedro public housing complex in August. Harridge Development Group made a big buy in April when it picked up a 60-acre site for $151.6 million with plans to build around 676 homes. [Curbed] — Dennis Lynch
