A presentation posted by the Encino Neighborhood Council unveils plans for a new Marriott-branded hotel on Ventura Boulevard.
The proposed hotel, which would be called the Sherman Oaks AC Hotel by Marriott, is slated for a property at 15485 Ventura Boulevard. Plans call for razing an existing 1960s-era development – the 70-room Sherman Hotel – to make way for the construction of a six-story building featuring 159 guest rooms above street-level commercial space and semi-subterranean parking.
Renderings of the project depict a contemporary podium-type building, rising approximately 75 feet in height. A second-level setback would be used to create a pool deck for guests, wrapped by additional indoor amenities. The building’s upper floor would include a bar with outdoor seating overlooking Ventura Boulevard.
The project is being designed by WATG. The developer of the proposed AC Hotel, Irvine-based DKN Hotels, owns a dozen properties in the Los Angeles area, including a second AC Hotel planned in Downtown Burbank.
The development site sits less than a half-mile southwest of the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Camarillo Street, where developer IMT Residential is planning a mixed-use apartment complex featuring more than 300 residential units.
