Developer MP Los Angeles has a new Hollywood project in the works.

The Millennium Partners affiliate filed for a 14-story office building at 6450 W. Sunset Boulevard between Wilcox Avenue and Cole Place. The filing was submitted by an affiliate entity called Seward Partners LLC.

The development, dubbed Sunset + Wilcox, would include just over 433,000 square feet of office space and about 12,000 square feet of retail. It would replace a Staples retail store. The project site is roughly 1.7 acres.

The project site is a few blocks from MP Los Angeles’ much larger Hollywood Center project. The $1 billion development has been in the works for years, hampered by a lawsuit that challenged its environmental analysis.

A California appeals court determined in August that the analysis — approved by the L.A. City Council in 2013 — was “fatally defective,” according to Curbed. The firm is conducting a new environmental analysis.

The Sunset + Wilcox project requires the city to sign off on a handful of zoning changes, including a height district change. MP Los Angeles plans to include three restaurants on site and requests liquor permits.

Parking would be located on seven floors, three of them underground.
