Mix of Stays: Hybrid Residential Project Pitched For K Street Office Building
There are interesting conversion plans in the works for an aging downtown DC office building.
The DC hospitality startup Placemakr, formerly known as WhyHotel, has plans to convert the 1960s-era office building at 1735 K Street NW (map) into a mixed-use project that will offer hybrid lodging as well as traditional apartments.

"Placemakr expects to operate the building with a mix of stays ranging from a short nightly stay to a traditional apartment length," documents filed with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment stated. "The building will also feature hospitality-like amenities, as well as ground floor retail space. The applicant is adaptively reusing the existing office building and none of the existing zoning characteristics of the building will change."
The K Street conversion is just the latest change-of-program for a downtown office building. A nine-story residential project was pitched for a medical office building a not too far away in August. A few weeks before that, plans were unveiled for a 180-unit conversion at a 19th Street office building.
