Half at K, Looking South-Southeast (see more)

Last week the DC Zoning Commission gave a unanimous thumbs-up last week to the design review for the first hotel at the Yards, to be constructed on the southwest corner of 3rd and Tingey on the north end of what is known in Yards parlance as "Parcel L."
It will be 10 stories tall, with 227 rooms and about 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail, plus additional space for a rooftop bar. No operator for the hotel has been publicly announced, but apparently those talks are far along.
The hotel is expected to be completed more or less at the same time as its sibling to the south, the 280ish-unit residential building that first hit the boards a year ago. That building will have about 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The residential building is being developed by Forest City, but the hotel is actually being developed by JW Capital Partners and Geolo Capital.
As part of the construction of these two buildings, a new pedestrian "mews" along what would be the footprint of 2nd Street SE will be constructed, making for an easier and less traffic-y flow between the Yards Park and points north and west.
There will also be a new Tingey Square built at the intersection of N, Tingey, and New Jersey, which should change the traffic flow at that spot considerably.
There's been no official announced timeline on these projects, but the closure on June 1 of the public parking lot on Parcel L might lead one to believe that there is some expectation of work at least on the southern end of the block looming before too long, but I know nothing for sure. UPDATE: I see now that an excavation-only permit was approved for this site recently (looks like they need to run water, sewer, gas, and telecommunications infrastructure to the block), and there is a shorting/sheeting permit application filed for the residential building, which jibes with the estimated 2018 start date that was given last year.
See my Parcel L page (such as it is) for additional details (such as they are).

And in other permit news, permits have started to be filed for The Garrett, the third residential building on the Park Chelsea/Agora block. And the shoring/sheeting/excavation permit for Parc Riverside Phase II looks to have been issued, but foundation and above-ground permits are still in process.

In case anyone is curious, I've been told the management company selected for this hotel is Thompson Hotels. I've never heard of them or stayed in any of their properties. Anyone know much about them? link

They are definitely already working at the Parc Riverside site. The notice in our elevator says to expect pile driving to start this Monday (6/12) and last about 5-6 weeks. I guess on the bright side, it's going to be easier to get my a$$ out of bed on time for the foreseeable future... link

Does anyone know if Tingey Square will be delivered as part of the completion of the DC Water work currently underway? Or at least the realigned roadway, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, etc.?

Are there enough people to fill all these hotels?


Section314 says: (6/11/17 11:25 PM)
Dude, the 2016/2017 DC Development report says that, as of Fall 2016, there were 29,387 hotel rooms in DC. What's a few hundred more?

I've been keeping an eye on the neighborhood hotels for my family for their upcoming vacation. Despite all being mid-tier brands, the rates are higher on a lot of dates than I might otherwise expect, which seems to suggest they're not having a hard time filling rooms. But I could be completely wrong.

Geolo Capital also operates the Liaison Hotel near Union Station (better known to locals as the hotel with Art & Soul restaurant). Thompson's Nashville property seems most comparable, in that it's in a similar new-build mixed-use neighborhood. Looks like they're aiming for a W Hotels price point and ambiance.

The mid-tier hotels seem really popular with both convention types going to the Hill and with tourist groups. Thompson is a different beast, though; will be interesting to see if enough rich yuppies are willing to book away from Dupont and Downtown.
