New Hotels, Mall Conversions And The 450 Units On The Boards For Georgetown
As the neighborhood waits for highly-anticipated restaurants to open, and luxury homes continue to sell, work moves ahead in Georgetown on a fairly robust pipeline of residential and hotel projects.
Today, UrbanTurf takes a look at the latest with the residential (and some of the commercial) projects on the boards and under construction in Georgetown. If we missed a sizable project, just shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com.
In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods we have compiled development updates for so far this year:
- Fitness Bridges, Food Halls and the 2,700 Units Coming to Navy Yard
- The 225 Units on the Boards in Adams Morgan
- The 560 Units in Development Along 14th Street
- The 6 Developments In the Works Along the DC Streetcar Line
2715 M Street NW
Douglas Development is looking to convert the office and retail building at 2715 M Street NW (map) into a fully residential project. The plans call for 28 new apartments to be added to the existing eight residential units; the new units will primarily be one-bedrooms. Emotive Architecture is designing the conversion. There are currently 62 vehicle parking spaces on the basement level, but only 11 spaces will be required upon change of use. There will also be bicycle parking on the lowest level.
Douglas has submitted plans for the conversion to DC's Historic Preservation Review Board, and the project will likely be considered at the February meeting.
A two-year extension has been filed for a five-story, seven-unit building approved for 2715 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (map). EastBanc and Willco plan to develop the project, where each of the apartments will average 2,000 square feet and there will be a ground-floor restaurant with outdoor seating. Souto Moura Arquitectos is the designer and Shinberg/Levinas Architectural Design is the architect of record.

Work began last year on the long-awaited retrofit and redevelopment of the Georgetown West Heating Plant at 1051-1055 29th Street NW (map). The Georgetown Companies and the Levy Group plan to turn the property into a Four Season-branded condominium building, delivering up to 72 units and a one-acre public park that sits elevated atop roughly 100 parking spaces. Sir David Adjaye designed the building and Laurie Olin designed the park.
A modification of significance was filed with DC's Zoning Commission in January for a planned unit development (PUD) that would replace an office building adjacent to The British International School of Washington at 3300 Whitehaven Street NW (map) with a five-story residential/educational building. Grosvenor is the developer and Hickok Cole is the architect.
As proposed, the building will have 256 residential units and approximately 5,600 square feet for use by the British International School. The unit mix will span from studios to three-bedrooms, and the new development will also include a below-grade auditorium and reconfigured outdoor recreation space. There will be 256 parking spaces.
Work is ongoing to reconfigure and construct an addition to the office/retail buildings at 1234-1238 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map), enabling another 15,000 square feet of office space and five residential units above the existing retail. EastBanc is the developer and McInturff Architects is the designer.

Fortis Companies is in the process of replacing the single-story commercial building and surface parking lot at 1805 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map) with a four-story building, delivering 35,000 square feet of residential units above 10,000 square feet of retail. The development would also include 23 below-grade parking spaces. Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect.
Shops at Georgetown Park Conversions
In 2021, Jamestown, the owner of the Georgetown Park mall, filed a historic preservation concept application hinting at a potential conversion of over 128,000 square feet of retail and miscellaneous space into as many as 166 residential units. A subsequent zoning application to convert a long-vacant below-grade retail space into a 125-unit self-storage facility was approved last year. Since that time, there hasn't been much movement on the new project.
Earlier this month, the Old Georgetown Board approved the resumption of demolition at the former site of Georgetown's Latham Hotel at 3000 M Street NW (map). Thor Equities has plans in the works for a 100-room hotel with retail and restaurant space. Winstanley Architects is the designer.
A 230-Room Hotel on Water Street
At the end of 2022, the OGB approved plans for a new hotel along Water Street. The development team is aiming to turn the property at 3401 Water Street NW (map) into a 230-room citizenM hotel, continuing to reuse the façade of the two-story building and constructing a five-story-plus-penthouse addition. Baskervill is the architect of record and concrete is the design architect.
A new project is under construction at 3220 Prospect Street NW (map), where W. T. Weaver and Sons and developer McCaffery Interests will deliver a five-story, 45-unit development. Eric Colbert and Associates is the designer.
