The latest edition of the Capitol Riverfront BID's newsletter reports this evening that the Buccini/Pollin Group is planning to break ground by the end of the year on what I've referred to as the "L Hotel" on the northwest corner of 1st and N streets, just across from Nationals Park on Square 701.
It is going to be a 13-story, 168-room Hampton Inn and Suites, says the BID, and would be completed by spring 2015.
This all jibes with some guessing I did back in April when it was reported that PM Hospitality Strategies (an affiliated company to Buccini/Pollin) was close to a deal to manage a hotel "in Capitol Hill." BPG owns many properties throughout the mid-Atlantic, including the Madison Hotel.
Note that the hotel project does not include the two-story building it wraps around in the rendering above; that is anticipated to be a retail building and is part of Grosvenor's planned mixed-use project immediately to the north, which currently has no announced timetable for construction.
This would be the second hotel built in Near Southeast, along with the Courtyard by Marriott that has had the neighborhood to itself since 2006. There are plans on the boards for three other hotels, including on the same block as this Hampton Inn, in the aforementioned Grosvenor project, plus around the corner on Half Street in Monument's long-planned Half Street project, and perhaps even at 50 M Street, as was recently reported by WBJ.
As of now there is no approved building permit for this site, though there is an application currently working its way through DCRA with an address of 1299 1st Street SE, filed back in August. So, until a permit is approved, don't look for any action.

The newsletter said something about a rooftop bar too....

"The LEED Silver certified hotel will be 13 stories in height with a rooftop that offers a bar, event space, and views of the stadium"

Guessed the brand correctly in the comments on the earlier post.

Hampton Inns don't usually have bars or food service, so I'd be a bit surprised if there's a full-time rooftop operation at this one -- perhaps more like an event space with a catering option. It's a missed opportunity, but then again this site isn't very accommodating to begin with.

I believe Monument's former hotel parcel is now owned by Greg Fazakerley and Ken Finkelstein.

That's a different one, Smokie, than the one on Half south of M where Monument's big hole in the ground is. That's 50 M, which I did mention in the post above (and linked to that article). Monument had originally pitched 50 M long ago as an office building.

Oh, I see! My bad. So many hotels...


JD says: (10/29/13 3:53 PM)
No problem! Lots of words there, as usual from me. :-)
