The hybrid hotel/apartment project on the boards for 901 5th Street NW (map) will have a different proportion of hotel rooms and apartments than originally planned, and may also have a restaurant or cocktail bar on the penthouse level, if the Board of Zoning Adjustment gives the green light.
The project comes from a development group led by the Peebles Corporation, which beat out three other teams in May of last year to develop the city-owned site. The other members of the development team include Walker Group, MacFarlane Partners and Standard Group. WDG Architecture designed the project.
Original plans for the project called for a hotel on floors 1-8 with a total of 153 rooms and 5,500 square feet of “meeting/function space.” On top of the hotel would be 52 residential units on floors 9-12.
The developers recently revised their plans for the total number of hotel rooms and apartments at the project. Now, they are proposing a total of 175 hotel rooms, and 48 apartments.
In addition, the team is asking for a special exception from the city’s proposed regulation related to penthouses “to allow a bar, cocktail lounge and/or restaurant use within the penthouse of the proposed building.”
The Board of Zoning Adjustment will consider the changes on November 10.
