a landmark nightclub on west hollywood’s sunset strip could be rebuilt as part of a mixed-use development proposed by morphosis. if approved, the project would involve the construction of a 115-room hotel as well as a residential component with 31 condos and 11 ‘affordable’ housing units. the viper room, the nightclub currently located on the site, would be integrated as part of the 15-story complex.

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.
