A cutting edge, 22 story office building is in the works for 6061 West Sunset Boulevard, in Hollywood. Titled “The Star,” it will replace a few smaller structures along Sunset Boulevard and Harold Way. Mayer Brown are representing the project.
The site aims to host a global entertainment company and act as a modern landmark. Plans call for both LEED certification and to be the first WELL certified building in Los Angeles. MAD Architects are behind the design, which takes inspiration from the Griffith Observatory, the Capitol Records building, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Cinerama Dome.
The building will be 420 feet tall, with 509,800 square feet of floor. The dome shape is engineered for a “Post-Covid” environment, including features that enhance employees physical, emotional, and mental well-being, such as “Sky Gardens” on the 10th and 17th floors. There will be 6,100 square feet of streetscap and 25,700 square feet of green roofing in total.
Other amenities include a funicular cable rail to transport visitors to the rooftop, an observation deck, and a rooftop restaurant and event space. 1,343 parking stalls, well over the local requirement, will be provided. 58 short term and 108 long term bicycle parking spaces will be available. Development is expected to cost $500 million.
