according to urbanize LA, in addition to a new home for the viper room, the proposed development would also include resident and guest amenities such as a gym, a movie screening room, a rooftop pool, and 269 parking spaces on three basement levels. morphosis’ design comprises a white, ribbon-windowed, 15-storey hotel that appears to clamp onto the scheme’s more rationally proportioned residential tower.
a 120-foot void is created between the two structures, while a bridge overhead would contain a restaurant and amenities for both residents and hotel guests. urbanize adds that construction of the proposed development, currently titled ‘8850 sunset boulevard’, is anticipated to begin in may 2021, with delivery expected in early 2024. plus development are engaged as development managers, with kilograph responsible for the scheme’s visualizations.
