We’ve written about the Ace Hotel-like Line concept, which so far exists only in Los Angeles. Sydell’s continuing its pursuit of the cool hotel with the Freehand concept, and takes the appeal to millennials a step further with shared accommodations.

Reservations in one of the coed shared quads should run about $35 a night. If you want to stay in a private room, you’ll have to pay more like $160 a night.

The Line DC is scheduled to open in 2016.
