Busy developer CIM Group might be behind a proposed 43-room hotel in West Adams.
The plans, filed with the city planning department earlier this year and discussed by the West Adams Neighborhood Council this week, call for a three-story hotel and a ground-floor restaurant with a bar to rise at 5170 West Adams Boulevard, just east of Adams and Redondo.
The addresses listed in the filing correspond to two one-story commercial buildings.
The applicant is listed as 5170 W. Adams (LA), an LLC with ties to CIM Group. The LLC is registered to 4700 Wilshire Boulevard, CIM’s headquarters.
This project might seem small for CIM Group. The developer is better known for taller, glassy projects like its under-construction, 34-story tower in Downtown’s South Park, or the forcibly vacated Hollywood residential tower Sunset/Gordon.
But this hotel wouldn’t be the only CIM Group project in the neighborhood. The developer recently ramped up activity on a project on Western and 24th Street that would turn a vacant medical facility into 60 live/work lofts and a rooftop restaurant.
