Photos: "Hollywood" Sign to Become a Hotel?

Photos: "Hollywood" Sign to Become a Hotel?Submit Comment
Nobody wants to see the "Hollywood" sign in Los Angeles taken down or changed in any way. Luckily, it is owned by the city, but the land around it is privately-owned by companies who have been planning to sell the land to real estate developers.

But before those real estate developers put a shopping mall there, a Danish architect Christian Bay-Jorgensen has a plan to transformer the sign itself into a hotel. Each giant letter would be twice the size of the current 45-foot tall sign and include amenities such as an observation desk.

The ultimate goal, he says, would be to preserve an internationally recognized landmark while helping the city generate badly needed funding. "I'm a fan of the Hollywood sign and the unused spaces of America," said Bay-Jorgensen. "It could be interesting to make it a center for such events as the Golden Globes and Oscars. This could be the future of the sign."

He added: "I know people are scared. I know they are afraid this idea will turn it into Disneyland. But when tourists from other countries come to see the sign, they imagine a majestic structure. Instead, they see plywood and white paint. This area should be more public."

But in this city, folks have a saying: The Hollywood sign is the Hollywood sign and shall always remain so.

It'll never happen, L.A. is weird but they'd never whore out like THAT.

Maybe it'll fall on Aniston and she'll stop making the same movie, over and over and over and over and over and over again!

My first response was "F this!" but after seeing the conceptual designs, I'm not so sure this is a bad idea. It would be very nice if this could be a city owned hotel and that revenue could come back to the taxpayers somehow but how likely is that going to be? Not very....

@CC - yes... to bone the lead actor. That's her M.O. (admittedly I'd do the same with my female leads were I in the same position).

Yeah... nice hotel. Put in even more glass for the Earthquake to really enjoy!

c*m 2 think of it...

I knew a Holly that gave me wood.

She was the younger sister to a guy I knew in school... and she had a really sweet rack (in looks and taste... as I suckled the fruit of her love melons).

But the guy is dead now (sky-dying accident). I wonder what she's doing these days? Maybe she needs a hug or her fluids topped up at Ranger-Lube.

BlueMobius - I agree, at first this sounded ridiculous, but that concept art makes it look pretty epic.

At least all the sucky actors and failures will have an easily accessible suicide platform.

Nevermind they have changed the name of it once before, before it said Hollywood it said Hollywoodland. :P
