Environmental Case No. State Clearinghouse No.
ENV-2016-2846-EIR 2016101009


Project Address:  1718 N. Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Community Plan Area:  Hollywood

Council District:  13—O’Farrell

Project Description:  The Project includes development of a hotel on an approximately 0.28-acre site located at 1718 N. Vine Street (Project Site) in the Hollywood community of the City.  The Project would include 240 guest rooms, approximately 2,742 square feet of guest amenities, and approximately 5,373 square feet of shared guest and public spaces.  The building would have a maximum height of 185 feet and would consist of 13 above-ground levels (including a mechanical mezzanine level above Level 1) and five subterranean levels.  The Project would provide 79 vehicular parking spaces and 72 bicycle parking spaces within five subterranean levels of parking in accordance with LAMC requirements.  All vehicular parking would be valet only. Upon completion, the Project would result in approximately 73,440 square feet of new floor area and a maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 6:1.


Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to:  on-site noise and vibration (human annoyance) and off-site vibration (human annoyance) during construction.  In addition, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable cumulative on-site noise, off-site noise, on-site vibration (human annoyance), and off-site vibration (human annoyance) during construction.  All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
