citizenM Los Angeles Downtown
Q4 2020 for opening of citizenM Los Angeles Downtown
Scheduled for Q4 2020 – 315 Rooms
The mid-rise building is being designed by the Dutch architecture firm Concrete in collaboration with the Los Angeles office of Gensler. A rendering depicts of contemporary 130-foot-tall structure of a similar aesthetic to other citizenM hotels.
The Amsterdam-based chain bills its hotels as "affordable luxury" establishments, located in central neighborhoods of major cities. Technology features prominently at citizenM locations; lights, televisions, and window blinds are controllable via iPad, and guests have access to free Wi-Fi.
General contractor Mortenson Construction will employ prefabricated modular units to build the citizenM. Though not common thus far in Los Angeles - with the notable exception of a recently-finished Marriott Hotel in Hawthorne - the use of prefabricated units allows for a faster buildout than more traditional methods of construction. Completion is anticipated in the second half of 2020, according to a project representative.
