In downtown LA, the 26-story hotel once referred to as the ‘Lizard Inn’ has plans to be completely overhauled into the gorgeous Spring Street Hotel. The 2019 opening date is tentative but hopeful. As plans are being finalized, the start of construction is getting close.

Environmental documents published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning have offered new information about the plans for 633 South Spring Street. The hotel is projected to find a home in the Historic Core and is being led by developer Lizard Capital.

In a recent environmental impact report, this 26-story hotel is listed with a new construction date of mid-2017 with a proposed opening date in the middle of 2019. The plans outline construction on a land parcel (often referred to as a “sliver lot” by locals) that is currently home to a 31-space parking lot on Spring Street between 6th and 7th Streets in the Downtown area.

Another big change included in this most recent round of building plans was the addition of onsite parking, a novelty in downtown LA. The builder now suggests that they will include 63 parking spaces throughout three levels of underground parking. There are still plans for hotel front valet parking, with plans for valet-parked cars to safely sit in the rear  alleyway — it even includes a car elevator.

The projected overall height has also changed slightly. The initial plans called for 28 stories and a maximum height of 325 feet. Now, the hotel has been shortened to “approximately 26 stories tall,” however the projected height has been increased to a maximum height of 338 feet. This will allow for higher ceilings and grander entrances. The hotel plans are said to include offices, a posh lounge, beautifully designed conference rooms, a well-equipped fitness center and a rooftop bar.

The luxury hotel plans to feature a fine dining restaurant, but no specifics on a chef or other details have been discussed. Adam Sokol Architecture Practice is designing the building and will feature ample concrete, including a concrete grid rising up 150 feet in order to “match the roof levels of the adjacent historic buildings.”

In addition to the Spring Street hotel, a number of other buildings are in the works for the Historic Core area of the city. There are currently plans for a 33-story tower planned near Grand Central Market, a 40-story tower proposed for a block further up Spring Street, and a 38-story building planned at Sixth and Main.
