hotel, motel, hollywood inn.
That title may be a little lame, but suitable all the same. In early April developers had big plans of purchasing the land that is Mount Lee (home of the iconic Hollywood Sign) in hopes of building luxury mansions. But it would appear that when Hollywood is in danger, all of America comes together to save the day. April 30th was the deadline for a nonprofit land-conservation group to purchase the land and become the next Hollywood Hero. With about $1 million dollars short, none other than Mr. Playboy donated $900,000 to preserve the sign. This is the second time Hefner has helped to save the sign, having donated $500,000 32 years ago as well.
Anyways with all that said and done, architect Christian Bay-Jorgensen has proposed a new and interesting idea to preserve the sign: The Hollywood Hotel. The hotel would offer 308 rooms and panoramic views of the hills. Would you stay at the Hollywood Hotel?
