GLAAACC Embraces $1.6B Angels Landing Hotel Project
The Greater Los Angeles African American Chamber of Commerce (GLAAACC) recently expressed its support for Angels Landing Partners’ hotel development. GLAAACC sent a letter to city planning officials to back the $1.6 billion development downtown Los Angeles.
“We have met with Angels Landing Partners LLC and understand that their project will create a new and dynamic destination in the Bunker Hill area in downtown Los Angeles. The (Angels Landing) project will attract new residents, tourists and business travelers by providing 535 new hotel rooms, many new retail shops and restaurants. The project also has a variety of open spaces and terraces that will make for a unique and welcoming experience for all who patronize the project site and surrounding areas,” Chairman Gene Hale wrote, “What really has us excited is Angels Landing Partners’ firm commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion through their pledge to achieve 30 percent minority-owned and women-owned business procurement and equally high level of diversity in the workforce that will manage and operate their luxury hotels. We trust Angels Landing Partners LLC to fully meet or exceed their ambitious and welcomed economic equity commitments.”
