A new hotel is in the works along the Georgetown waterfront.

Almost 18 months since developer IDI Group received approval to redevelop the warehouse building that houses The Berliner beer hall to deliver 54 condos, a new team is now aiming to turn the property at 3401 Water Street NW (map) into a citizenM hotel.

A concept application was filed with the Historic Preservation Review Board for the preoject this week. The façade of the two-story building will be retrofit and will see a five-story-plus-penthouse addition. Baskervill is the architect of record and concrete is the design architect.

UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the project for more details.

Note: Prior to IDI Group owning the building at 3401 Water Street, Willco Residential entitled the site for 54 condos. IDI then purchased the building from Willco.
