Two projects, a stone’s throw from each other in the Hollywood Business District, are moving slowly, while a third several blocks to the north is beginning to rise out of the ground. A hardware chain’s renovation of the 40,000-square-foot building that formerly housed the Hollywood Bowl has removed all decorative stone from the building’s exterior.
Several hundred feet to the north on Northeast 41st Avenue, a house remains boarded up, targeted for demolition to be replaced by a new multistory building housing 50 units of short-term rental units. Surrounding businesses, braced for interruptions and traffic woes during construction hours, have not reported being inconvenienced.
About a quarter mile to the north on Northeast Tillamook Street between Northeast César Chávez Boulevard and Northeast 41st Avenue, the basement of a four-story apartment building that will house 74 units appears to be complete; and the building is beginning to show above the ground. Unlike other apartment complexes recently completed, parking will be included in this complex.
