Back in February, plans emerged for yet another Hollywood hotel, joining the increasingly ridiculous number already on the way to the area.
For one thing, it has a name: the Chaplin Hotel. Renderings of the project show it would have a boxy concrete design, with glass walls fronted by a photovoltaic brise soleil (you know, a sun blocking thing).
Designed by Roschen Van Cleve Architects, it would also include frosted glass images of the bowler hat-wearing fellow who appears to be the hotel’s namesake.
The 11-story structure is planned for 7225 West Sunset Boulevard, at the corner of Poinsettia Place. It would replace the low-slung commercial structures that currently exist at the project site.
The hotel is set to include 93 guest rooms, along with a ground-floor restaurant and a four level subterranean parking structure. Other features include several meeting rooms, an outdoor terrace on the second floor, and a rooftop pool.
