More than two years after plans were revealed for one of DC’s oldest known surviving apartment buildings, The Harrison has a new developer and a new proposal for redevelopment.
Quadrum Global has applied for concept approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board to retrofit The Harrison at 333 G Street NW (map) into a 12-story Arlo Hotel with roughly 421 rooms. In 2012, Renaissance Centro received zoning approval for what would now be a matter-of-right 12-story building with 200 hotel rooms and 65 apartments.
In addition to standard amenities including a penthouse lounge and pool, the proposed hotel would also have space for two restaurants, one of which has space designated for a speakeasy; there is also 1,148 square feet that has been marked for a "bodegea" [sic] at 3rd and G Streets. One of the restaurants would be on the ground level and the other would be in the cellar which is where the speakeasy would be located.
The Harrison is a Romanesque Revival-style building designed by Johnson and Company and completed in 1890. The building was designated as a DC landmark in 1990 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. Architecture, Incorporated is the architect and EHT Traceries is helming the historic preservation.
