It has been about two years since Silver Lake restaurant and bar owner Dana Hollister talked about how she wanted to convert the former Pilgrim Church on Griffith Park Boulevard into a hotel and lounge. Now, Hollister is poised to provide more details to the public after she applied for a city zoning variance to convert the 83-year-old Romanesque-style church into a 26-room hotel with a restaurant and lounge. A consultant working with Hollister, a Silver Lake resident whose holdings include the nearby Cliff’s Edge restaurant and 4100 Bar, is scheduled to appear next Wednesday, Feb. 13, before the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council’s Urban Design & Preservation Commmittee to discuss the project, which is located one block north of Sunset Boulevard.
What does Hollister have in mind? “I want to do something that is conservative and appropriate,” Hollister told The Eastsider in 2011. We will know more soon.
