The boutique hotel planned near Union Market that will have a substantial focus on DC’s artistic community has made a few changes to its plans in response to comments from the Zoning Commission.

The 11-story, 178-room hotel on the boards for 411 New York Avenue NE (map) is being developed by D.B. Lee Development and Brook Rose Development. The hotel will house nine individual artist spaces on the first and second floors, and there will be a 2,000 square foot art gallery on the second level as well. There will also be a restaurant located over the hotel lobby, another restaurant on the hotel’s 11th floor, and a rooftop with a lounge, pool, and bar. The hotel was designed by DC-based architecture firm BBGM.

In new plans submitted to the Commission in advance of a hearing at the beginning of February, the hotel design has been updated to lower the height of the proposed mechanical penthouse, however the more significant change focuses on an alternate use for the 10th floor.

“In order to be most attractive to a hotel operator, the Applicant requests flexibility to have the option to convert up to 15 rooms previously shown for the 10th Floor to approximately 5,256 square feet of ballroom/function space,” the development team wrote in its latest statement to the Commission. “This alternate layout would reduce the total number of proposed hotel rooms from 178 to 163, and it would not increase the Project’s parking demands. As designed, the Project has limited dedicated function and/or ballroom space because so much of the hotel’s publicly-accessible square footage is devoted to arts creation, presentation and exhibition.”

The hotel is on the Zoning Commission docket for February 1.
