LA's $11.5-million damage settlement to former homeless hotel won't be utilized for repairs.
The city of Los Angeles recently paid a boutique hotel $11.5 million after receiving allegations of damaged furniture,
torn carpet, and other sorts of damage. The hotel had been used as homeless lodging for two years.
Even though the city is about to purchase the land, none of that money will be used for building repairs, officials stated this week.
The purchase of the 294-room Mayfair Hotel, which will be a crucial component of Mayor Karen Bass's campaign against homelessness,
is expected to be approved by the City Council in a vote scheduled for this Friday.
Before that decision, city officials clarified that the seller, Mayfair Lofts,
will not be required to use any of the $11.5 million in public damage settlements to paint rooms,
replace light fixtures, or make other repairs to the structure.
