Two commercial buildings and a surface parking lot could be demolished to make way for the construction of a seven-story, mixed-use development in Hollywood.
Named 1400 Vine, the proposed project calls for 198 residential units, including 21 affordable units reserved for very low income households, and 16,000 square feet of commercial space for restaurants or retail. The unit mix would consist of 54 studio, 111 one-bedroom and 33 two-bedroom residences. Select apartments would come with 50-square-foot private balconies.
An LLC affiliated with Santa Monica-based Tooley Interests is listed as the applicant. The investment company purchased the site in 2012 for $12.24 million, according to reporting from Urbanize LA. This is the second development application submitted to Los Angeles City Planning for the 50,000-square-foot site — the first was filed in December 2019 but appears to have been withdrawn.
There would be 278 vehicle parking spaces at grade and across three subterranean levels. Parking for 153 bicycles is also proposed, including 21 short-term and 132 long-term stalls.

The ground floor would contain four restaurant and/or retail spaces, each spanning 2,500 to 5,000 square feet and fronting onto Vine Street. A pair of residential lobby entrances, one on Delongpre Avenue and the other on Leland Way, would provide a rideshare pickup/drop-off point and elevator access. Indoor amenity areas would be found on levels two, three, four and eight, although their uses have not been specified.
The spacious lower podium courtyard on level three would boast multiple seating areas, manicured hedges and a deck with string lights. Meantime, the upper podium pool deck on level four would tout a swimming pool, lounge chairs, outdoor fireplace and plush sectionals. An alfresco dining area would also provide a barbecue, bar seating and a large table. Finally, level eight would include a sky deck of approximately 600 square feet with an adjacent indoor amenity space, offering sweeping views of the surrounding neighborhood.
Designed by TCA Architects, the contemporary mid-rise structure would be characterized by white and grey plaster, wood-look siding, aluminium and glass balcony guardrails, light-trimmed vinyl windows, steel awnings, and floor-to-ceiling storefront windows.
Located at 1400 to 1440 Vine Street, the development site would put future residents within a nine-minute walk of Hollywood and Vine — an iconic intersection that’s home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Pantages Theatre, Capitol Records Building, Metro B Line station, and countless bars, restaurants and retailers.
