A boutique hotel with fairly small rooms is being floated for a commercial strip in Dupont Circle, UrbanTurf has learned.
An application has been filed with the Historic Preservation Office to construct a six-story rear extension to 1827-1829 M Street NW (map), creating 52 micro-hotel rooms. ANC 2B Commissioner Daniel Warwick compared the planned hotel to the Arlo Hotel in New York or BE SixFifty in Toronto.
The resulting building will be 69 feet tall with no penthouse, with the extension adding 12,050 square feet to the existing 9,630 square-foot buildings. The lower level will contain the lobby and reception area of the hotel, as well as a 1,265 square-foot bar and "travel shop", while the first floor will have a fitness room and a 1,680 square-foot café and/or event space.
Fifty-two micro hotel rooms ranging from 140-312 square feet in size will sit across the upper five floors. Square 134 Architects helmed the design, which is still in the massing phase.
One of the buildings was most recently the site of Dallas Cowboys-loyalist Parlay Sports Bar and Lounge, while the other currently houses a Soupergirl shop; it is unclear whether the latter would remain as a tenant. The applicant will present their plans at this week's ANC 2B meeting; a Historic Preservation Review Board hearing has not yet been scheduled.
