Who’s Building L.A.: Luxury Developer Brings Innovative Solutions to Housing Crisis
Housing: it’s the issue on every Angelenos’ mind. From local leaders and city staff, to community advocates and residents, we’re all acutely aware of the drastic housing crisis – especially with the recently released 2019 homeless count indicating a staggering 16 percent jump in homelessness in the city.
With so many people focused on affordable housing, it may come as a surprise that one of the issue’s biggest champions and most innovative problem solvers is a luxury real estate developer.
Relevant Group is one of the largest independent luxury lifestyle hotel development companies in Los Angeles. The developer is currently responsible for the revitalization of what has been dubbed the “Vinyl District” in Hollywood – a reimagining of the neighborhood as Los Angeles’s answer to New York City’s Meatpacking District, a hub for dining and entertainment that will include a mix of chic hotels, restaurants, nightlife destinations, and other projects, including Relevant Group’s own Dream Hotel, Thompson and Tommie Hotels, and the Citizen News Building event and dining space.
