A development group led by the Peebles Corporation will develop a vacant plot of land at 901 5th Street NW (map) into a building that will serve as both a hotel and an apartment project.

According to documents filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Friday, the hotel will occupy floors 1-8 of the new project, with a total of 153 rooms and 5,500 square feet of “meeting/function space.” On top of the hotel will sit 52 residential units on floors 9-12. There will be a restaurant and cafe on the ground floor.

The Peebles Corporation beat out three other development teams in May of last year to develop the city-owned site. The other members of the development team include Walker Group, MacFarlane Partners and Standard Group. WDG Architecture designed the project.

The development team plans to build the project’s affordable units off-site in a seven-story building across the Anacostia River at 2100 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, a proposal that made local voices east of the river none too happy when it was floated last year.
