Rendering of planned hotel at Union Market.
The boutique hotel planned near Union Market that takes inspiration from some of the trendiest accommodations in New York City received its first go-ahead from the Zoning Commission on Monday night.
The Commission voted that the 11-story, 178-room hotel planned for 411 New York Avenue NE (map) could move forward to a formal set down hearing at a later date, an initial step in the zoning approval process.
D.B. Lee Development and Brook Rose Development are partnering with Cultural DC on the hotel adjacent to Union Market that will have a substantial focus on DC’s artistic community. The hotel was designed by DC-based architecture firm BBGM.
The hotel will house nine individual artist spaces on the first and second floors, and there will be a 2,000 square foot art gallery on the second level as well. There will also be a restaurant located over the hotel lobby, another restaurant on the hotel’s 11th floor, and a rooftop with a lounge, pool, and bar.
