Downtown Bozeman’s The LARK boutique hotel recently completed its new 17,600-square-feet, 4-story addition which the hotel is calling its West Building. The LARK hotel is located at the corner of Main Street and Grand Avenue and the addition is adjacent to the current LARK hotel building, a remodel of a traditional motor inn that was featured in our previous article. The new addition expands the hotel to include an additional 29 guest rooms and a ground floor event gallery and commercial space which is currently occupied by Treeline Coffee Roasters.
Operated by Columbia Hospitality, The LARK hotel has now close to 70 guest rooms available, an increase from about 40 rooms prior to the expansion. Designed by ThinkTank Design Group, the 4-story addition is the first hotel building project that employed cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction in Montana. North Fork Builders is the general contractor. Nishkian Monks served as the Structural Engineer of Record on this CLT project.
The mixed-use development project at 1341 Vine Street in Los Angeles, CA has nearly completed the below-grade parking structure, and is now placing concrete at the ground floor and looking to go above grade.
Construction on the Academy Square on Vine project, a new $450-million, mixed-use project being developed by Kilroy Realty Corporation and designed in collaboration with House & Robertson Architects and GBD Architects, began earlier this year. Covering 3.5 acres and occupying a full city block bounded by Vine Street, DeLongpre Avenue, Ivar Street, and Homewood Avenue in Hollywood, the mixed-use development campus has over 150,000-square-feet footprint and over one-million-square-feet of total area. The entire project is comprised of five buildings on the podium including a 20-story residential tower in the northwest corner of the site which all sit over a three-story underground concrete podium structure. Entertainment giant and media services provider Netflix, Inc. has signed a long-term lease with Kilroy Realty for a whopping 355,000-square-feet at the Academy Square on Vine which means Netflix will occupy all the space in the three office buildings being built on the property. This large mixed-use construction project is expected to be completed in 2020.
