Amoeba's location at 6400 Sunset Blvd

The L.A. City Council voted June 25 to approve a zoning change at the site of Amoeba Music's Hollywood store.

The change paves the way for a planned 26-story complex at the site -- a project that will begin with the tearing down of the iconic store.

The new development will contain 200 residential units with 10 set aside for very low-income households and will also have 7,000 square feet of commercial space. It will be located at 6400 Sunset Blvd., 1440-1460 N. Cahuenga Blvd., 6400-6416 W. Sunset Blvd., 1419 N. Ivar Ave., 1441-1453 N. Ivar Ave. and 1418 N. Cahuenga Blvd.

Amoeba Music opened its Hollywood location in 2001. In 2015, it sold the property to GPI Cos. for $34 million; it has been leasing the building from GPI since.

Amoeba Music has been vocal about plans to stay in Hollywood though its new location has not yet been announced.
