What would you like to see in the space slated for development behind Musso & Frank Grill?
Earlier this week, we posted the L.A. Times article about Champion Real Estate Co.'s recent purchase of the parking lot behind Musso & Frank Grill. The price was not disclosed, but experts familiar with the property valued it at $10 million, according to the article.
President Robert Champion said he envisions a mixed-use building on the property.
Hollywood Unbound blogger Darryl Ford chimed in with his view of the site's potential. He writes:
My hope is that Champion chooses to create a mixed-use project that (1) provides as little on-site parking as possible as the site is very close to the Hollywood and Highland Metro station and across the street from a City-owned public parking garage; (2) includes a well designed and attractive public plaza or courtyard that can serve as a community gathering space and support the proposed retail establishments; and, (3) provides space for neighborhood serving retail – not t-shirt shops or more nightclubs – as the site sits in a transition zone between Hollywood Boulevard and the residential portions of the Yucca corridor.
