Exclusive - A 'World Class' Park and High-End Residences: The Plans For Site of Wardman Park Hotel
Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
Big plans are in the works for sections of the 16-acre site of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, UrbanTurf has learned.
The JBG Companies is in the nascent stages of a plan that would bring a few hundred residential units and a public park to the hotel site in Woodley Park. The firm has already built 2700 Woodley, a 212-unit apartment building on the site, and there are 32 high-end residences in the works for Wardman Tower.
“We want to create a world-class public park that will serve as a central gathering place for the neighborhood,” JBG’s Robert Vaughan told UrbanTurf. The concept for the site would include an all-residential neighborhood in addition to the park, but the timeline for the project, as well as the residential unit mix, are still very much in flux.

“Given the current future land use designation, we are currently limited to considering only residential uses in our planning exercises,” a JBG representative told UrbanTurf. “The Office of Planning (OP) will be starting a public process to review the current Comprehensive Plan recommendations to see if any revisions would be appropriate. As part of that process, OP will be considering whether areas of Woodley Park along main arterials should allow for retail uses in some capacity.”
The development team met with the Woodley Park Community Association last week to provide a rough outline of the proposal and will continue to meet and collaborate with the community in the coming months.
The Marriott Wardman Park Hotel was built in 1918 at 2660 Woodley Road NW (map), and acquired by JBG in 2005.
