We told you first that Larry Ellison and Nobu Matsuhisa were going into business together, and now we know specifically where their collaboration will take place.
The Oracle Corp. CEO has purchased the Casa Malibu Inn at 22752 Pacific Coast Highway.
The Inn’s lease runs out tomorrow, and after an extensive remodel, Ellison will reopen the venue as a “Japanese concept hotel” in conjunction with nearby Nobu Malibu.
Renovation plans have been approved and will reduce the number of rooms from 21 to 16. Architect Severine Tatangelo of Studio PCH, who also designed the Nobu space, is working on the project.
