London Arts Club: Plans to develop an approximately 132,000 square foot, mixed-use building up to 141 feet in height on a 20,241 square-foot site located at 8920 West Sunset Boulevard and 1024–1036 North Hilldale Avenue in the City of West Hollywood. The Project would serve as the U.S. West Coast home of the Arts Club, a private membership club originally founded in London in 1863 for those interested in the arts, science, and literature. The Arts Club was a hub of the arts in 19th-century London and continues serve as a social venue and meeting place to promote art, architecture, fashion, film, literature, music, performance, photography, science, theatre, and television/media. The Arts Club would contain a mix of commercial uses accessible to members and their guests, including restaurants, lounges, bars, guestrooms, screening rooms, a supper club, fitness center/spa facilities, and a rooftop deck that would include a swimming pool, changing rooms, and a bar and dining space. In addition, the first four levels of the building would be open to the public and would include ground floor retail and an art gallery, and creative office space on Levels 2 through 4.
The development comprises publicly-accessible commercial spaces which would occupy Levels 1 through 4 of the new building, with retail uses and the art gallery on Level 1 (the ground floor level) and creative offices on Levels 2 through 4. The creative offices on Levels 2 through 4 would include open-air terraces on each level along the northern, southern, and western sides of the building. The members-only Arts Club would occupy Levels 5 through 9. Levels 5 through 8 would include restaurants, lounges and bars, private dining terraces on each level, screening rooms, a supper club, 15 guestrooms, and a fitness center/spa. The fitness center/spa on Level 5 would have an open-air dining terrace on the south side of the building and a view terrace on the northeast corner. The guestrooms would not function as a typical hotel use, since it would only be accessible to members of the Arts Club, but would provide for room service and contain mini-bars within each room. Level 9 would include a rooftop pool, changing rooms, a sun deck, and a bar and dining space, which would rise approximately 115 feet above the northeast corner of the Project Site along Sunset Boulevard. An exterior stairway on the southern side of the rooftop deck would allow for access to the restaurant, bar and supper club located on Level 8.
In addition parking within the proposed Project would be comprised within a fully automated parking structure contained in five subterranean levels and containing approximately 350 spaces.
