PROJECTS > ADAPTIVE REUSE / HISTORIC LANDMARK/ HOSPITALITY/ ACE Hotel United Artists Building

Project Description / Overview

NYA provided the structural engineering for the adaptation of the 1920's Historic 14-story United Artist Theater building in downtown Los Angeles into a boutique, trendy hotel -- the newest addition to the Ace Hotel brand; It features 182 rooms, a pool, a restaurant, three bars, and the restored United Artists Theater. The renovations included seismic upgrades, the excavation of a new basement, a new mezzanine on the ground floor for the restaurant and lounge, and a new roof top bar and pool area. Shotcrete and fiberwrap reinforcing was used to minimize the amount of structural work required and to preserve the historic character of the building while creating the superstructure for modern amenities and new services. The hotel officially opened in early 2014.
