CALIFORNIA
DREAMING
Steady growth for the City of Angels

Los Angeles entices stargazers and dreamers
to its idyllic coastal setting, and in the past few
years, developers have also garnered a renewed
interest in the West Coast city. Downtown LA
is flourishing and trending upward thanks to
Millennials who are cultivating a cool, hip,
culturally aware, and diverse vibe in the area.
"People want to live downtown, which they
never used to before," says Leah Dauer Murphy,
senior vice president at HVS, who credits a
friendlier environment and lower barriers to
entry as development motivators.
In the last year, LA added 28 hotel projects
(second in the U.S. only to Dallas with 44) and
by the fourth quarter of 2015 saw 96 projects
under construction, in the pipeline, or in early

planning stages for 17,332 rooms, according to
Lodging Econometrics. Along with a robust
downtown market, much of the credit goes
to an influx of global travelers (6.7 million
foreign visitors flocked to the city last year,
representing a 3.4 percent increase from 2014,
according to LA's tourism and convention
bureau Discover Los Angeles), especially from
China, and the success of boutique properties
in up-and-coming areas, like the Ace Hotel
Downtown Los Angeles and French transplant
Mama Shelter in Hollywood, acting as a
blueprint for developers.
Big brands like Marriott, Hilton, and
InterContinental, are finding a home in LA
as are lifestyle brands-and it seems very few
neighborhoods are being left out of the action
(West Hollywood alone is set to increase its
hotel inventory by 20 percent, according to Visit
West Hollywood). There's a downtown Kelly
Wearstler-designed Proper Hotel planned; the
recently renovated W Hollywood by Dawson
Design Associates; the highly anticipated

Pierre-Yves Rochon-designed Waldorf Astoria
Beverly Hills and Jean Georges signature
restaurant expected to open next year;
boutique offering 8950 Sunset Boulevard by
HBA that promises to be a technology and
design triumph; the ultra-luxury 190-key
West Hollywood Edition Hotel & Residences;
Denihan Hospitality Group's 286-room James
opening later this year, the first ground-up
hotel in West Hollywood in 30 years; Kimpton's
105-room La Peer hotel set for the West
Hollywood Design District; and the NoMad,
which will be housed in downtown's circa1920s Giannini Place building, planned for a
fall 2017 launch. And slated for 2019, Related
Companies will open its second Equinox hotel,
following its slated New York debut.
It's not just hotels that are defining the city's
prosperous path. Restaurants (keeping LA's
reputation as a foodie town) and co-working
spaces alike further prove that development is
only gaining momentum. Here is a look at a few
of Tinseltown's newest and (planned) greatest.
