With its summer debut on the horizon, the wrapping has come off at the Downtown Los Angeles Proper Hotel.
The 13-story building, located at the corner of 11th Street and Broadway, has been restored over the past three years by Los Angeles-based developer Kor Group. Upon reopening, the hotel will feature 148 guest rooms, with unique amenities such as a library, an indoor pool, and a basketball court turned screening room - all artifacts of the building's past use as a YWCA facility.
Downtown-based architecture firm Omgivning, which specializes in historic restoration projects, designed the Proper Hotel, building off of original work by Curlett & Beelman from the 1920s.
The Proper Hotel is one of three historic restoration projects centered on the intersection of 11th and Broadway. North across 11th Street, the 1925 Los Angeles Railway Building is being converted into a Hoxton Hotel. West across Broadway, construction is in full swing at the Herald Examiner Building, which will become a satellite campus for Arizona State University.
Kor Group is building in construction for another Proper Hotel in Santa Monica, which is also scheduled to open this year.
