Just south of the San Bernardino Freeway in Boyle Heights, construction is progressing slowly for a new hotel development.
The project, which is rising from a formerly vacant site at the intersection of Soto Street and Pomeroy Avenue, will consist of a four-story edifice featuring 81 guest rooms with a small breakfast area and a 61-car garage.
Construction began at the property roughly one year ago. As of April 2020, one level of wood-frame construction how stands above the hotel's concrete podium and basement parking structure.
A rendering of the building, which is designed by Mid-Cities Engineering, depicts a contemporary low-rise building.
City records list the project's applicant as Amit Patel, who manages a hotel development firm called Stay Hotels Group, LLC.
The property was sold for approximately $2 million in 2015.
