Rendering of Thor Equities’ plans for Latham Hotel.
A number of new plans have been floated for the former Latham Hotel on Georgetown’s M Street, but recently-filed documents show it will remain a hotel, albeit with a familiar design.
On Wednesday, Thor Equities filed plans with the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) to convert the property at 3000 M Street NW (map) into an 82-room hotel.
If you think that the renderings here look familiar, you’d be right as the developer did not change much, in terms of massing, design and scale, from when a proposal was introduced a couple years ago to turn the property into a 140-micro-unit development. This was no doubt a calculated decision on the part of Thor Equities, as the previous proposal had already received approval from the BZA in 2014.
In addition to 82 rooms, the hotel will have approximately 34,000 square feet of retail space. The plans will retain the 24 parking spaces on the lower level of the property, which will be accessible by a car elevator.
Last July, developer SB-Urban decided not to move forward with plans to redevelop the hotel site into a micro-unit project with 140 furnished residences. Thor Equities purchased the building two months later for $53 million.
