The plans for a massive residential project at the site of the former Marriott Wardman Park hotel in DC's Woodley Park are coming into focus.
A Carmel Partners-affiliated development entity has applied for concept review of a development that would raze and replace the vacant hotel with two serpentine buildings, delivering 900 residential units. The project would reduce the existing building footprint on the site, adding more than two acres of open space and improving the "front lawn" along the 2600 block of Woodley Road NW (map). Purchase of the hotel was finalized in November after a bankruptcy auction last year.
As designed by Shalom Baranes Associates, the new development will incorporate the existing "one-story arcade" on the site that previously connected to the hotel, linking the new Building A with the Wardman Tower.
There will be an amenity courtyard between the buildings; Building A will have five levels of parking below the courtyard level and Building B will have one. Parker Rodriguez is the landscape architect.
Additional renderings are below; an animated video of the development is also available here.
