JBG Proposes New Hotel for 13th and U

The JBG Companies ( presented their plans to develop the corner into a 110 foot high hotel with 250 rooms at the recent ANC 1B meeting. The development is a PUD (planned unit development) that will require a zoning change since the "by right" height is 65 feet. Amenities will feature a rooftop pool and bar, art gallery spaces, and retail on the ground floor (including the current Rite Aid drug store). The development team reported that they have addressed parking concerns by featuring an all-valet two-story garage that will utilize mechanical stacking devices to far surpass the amount of spaces required by zoning.

For more information, please contact Matt Valentini, JBG project manager, at 240.333.3600.
