Preservation and Development Coexist in Hollywood

The Millennium Hollywood, a proposed mixed used development near Sunset Boulevard and Vine Avenue, is expected to increase the density in the area while preserving the nearby Capitol Records building.

The $1 billion project includes 4.47 acres of park land and one million square feet of street level space and will add 492 residential units, 200 luxury hotel rooms, office space, restaurant and retail space and 40,000-square feet for a sports club.

Reporter Stephanie Jones from The Architect's Newspaper talked to architect Bill Roschen, who said: "That's the ambition around Capitol Records–to let the new density actually provide a setting for this historic structure in a true gateway for Hollywood and, in many ways, for Los Angeles."
