Construction on a planned hotel in Adams Morgan, The Line DC, is scheduled to begin by the end of the summer, according to ANC 1C Commissioner Billy Simpson.

The 220-room hotel went through a lengthy planned unit development (PUD) process before receiving approval to move ahead from the city’s Zoning Commission early last year. Demolition of 2390 Champlain Street NW (map), the former City Paper building, is scheduled to begin soon, Simpson told UrbanTurf, and should be completed by the end of the summer. Simpson said that the team behind the hotel has indicated that they will start construction soon after that. Construction is expected to take a couple of years, meaning the hotel could deliver at the end of 2016.

The new hotel will be be built partly into an existing church at 1780 Columbia Road NW (map), which the developers will preserve, and extend into a new building behind the church, where most of the rooms will be housed. The development has faced stiff opposition from neighbors, who set up the aptly-named No Adams Morgan Hotel group to lobby against its construction. The building has undergone substantial design revisions throughout the planning process.

The project is being developed by the Sydell Group Ltd., which has developed Ace Hotels around the country. The hotel will be the second in a new chain called The Line DC, which has been successful in Los Angeles.
