Douglas Development has plans in the works to bring another hotel to Georgetown. 

The longtime DC developer has applied for historic preservation concept review to retrofit the five-story office building at 1023 31st Street NW (map) into a 90-100 room hotel.

The office building at the address would be wholly converted; two adjacent rowhouses would remain, although prior rear additions to the rowhouses would be demolished in order to create an interior courtyard and construct a rear addition to the hotel.

The lower level of the office building, currently a garage, would be retrofit into an exercise room, "breakfast area", and back-of-house space. FILLAT + Architecture is the designer.

This new hotel would add to the other hotel developments in the works for the neighborhood, including a revived proposal to replace the Latham Hotel, and a recent pivot from residential to a CitizenM hotel for a warehouse building on Water Street.
