The JBG Companies has mammoth residential plans in the works for the 16-acre site of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.

In March, UrbanTurf reported that JBG was moving forward with a plan to bring a few hundred residential units and a public park to the hotel site in Woodley Park. Two planned unit developments (PUD) that the firm will file with the Zoning Commission on Friday outlines much grander plans.

The first phase of the new development will include an eight-story, 119-unit residential building and a large green space that will sit between 2700 Woodley, an existing 212-unit apartment building, and the 32 high-end residences in the works for Wardman Tower.

The latter phases will be much more expansive, replacing the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel with four new residential buildings, ranging from eight stories to 14 stories. These buildings include:

  • Building Two — An eight-story, 314-unit building that will be constructed to the south of the residential building in the first phase.
  • Building Three — The largest of the planned buildings will be twelve stories and have approximately 598 units.
  • Buildings Four and Five — Abutting Calvert Street, the final two buildings will include a 12-story, 245-unit building and a 14-story, 371-unit project.

The development plans, designed by David M. Schwarz Architects, also include the construction of more than 1,000 underground parking spaces as well as plans for retail. It is important to note that the unit counts above for each building could change as the PUD moves through the zoning process.

The Marriott Wardman Park Hotel was built in 1918 at 2660 Woodley Road NW (map), and acquired by JBG in 2005.

    I believe Schwarz designed the new residential building adjacent to this site, and if so, the fact that he's been selected to design the whole development is not good news. The recent building is a stuffy, phony historic design that I think visually competes with the original Wardman Park tower, which is gorgeous. I'd much rather see something modern on this site.

    I know. Here we are in 2016, hi tech this and hi tech that and conservative boring, corniced and dental molding buildings are considered "Safe" design. No its just easy, no thought look up the design in a history book, add Internet and a Starbucks and Boom there you have it. Next....
