SILVER LAKE — The developer of a trio of proposed apartment buildings with more than 300 units in Sunset Junction has filed a preliminary report explaining the impact the project would have on the neighborhood. The details of the so-called Sunset Gateway project pretty much reflect previous statements and plans revealed in recent years. However, the environmental documents float the new idea of replacing one of the apartment buildings with a hotel.
A 95-room hotel with 4,000-square fee of restaurant space is presented as one of the potential alternatives for an 84-unit apartment building at Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevard (Site 1), across from the Silver Lake Jiffy Lube and Cafe Stella, according to the draft of the environmental impact report filed last week by developer Frost/Chaddock.
According to Curbed LA:
The report says the height of the hotel would be four stories, “which is a reduction in height of 11 feet and one story when compared to the 68-foot [mixed-use] Project.” (A previous version of the story incorrectly noted the hotel’s height would be five stories.) The total square footage of the hotel, “would be substantially reduced in size” compared to the mixed-use building planned. The hotel alternative wouldn’t affect the plans for the other two buildings in the project, which would remain unchanged.”
While the proposal would bring a hotel to Sunset Junction, one of the new apartment buildings that would be constructed would replace the long shuttered Sunset Pacific motel at the corner of Sunset and Bates (Site 3).
The new hotel is among several alternatives described in the lengthy document that will be subject to public review and a hearing.
Correction: A previous version of this story contained an excerpt from Curbed L.A. that said the hotel alternative would be five stories tall. That was wrong. The correct height is four stories. The story has been updated with a new excerpt that reflects the correct height.
