A 220 room hotel with 13 stories is on up for discussion for Mount Vernon Triangle from DC developer Douglas Development. A proposal for the project is currently sitting with the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) for review. Preliminary designs and renderings for the hotel by Fillat+ Architecture are making the rounds in UrbanTurf.
The new hotel at 13 stories goes right up against DC’s overall height restriction on buildings. Revisions made in 1910 to the Height of Buildings Act of 1899 allow building heights up to 130 feet in the District on “business or commercial streets.” The flip side, and something our new condo developer clientele already knows well, is that buildings on residential streets can not exceed 90′.
The hotel will be replacing a two-story structure and parking lot at 601 K Street NW.
