Real Estate: CitizenM Hotel Wins OGB Approval
By December 12, 2022 0 629•
The Georgetown waterfront property at 3401-3403 K St. NW, owned by CitizenM Hotels, earned approval from the Old Georgetown Board to begin work on the 100-year-old waterfront property. The Old Georgetown Board (OGB) is an advisory board of three architects appointed by D.C.’s Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) to oversee the reviews of neighborhood projects in the historic district.
The OGB gave their approval to expand, renovate and convert the building into a 230-room hotel. The hotel will be the third CitizenM (a Netherlands-based chain) in the city. If you’re looking to sift through the full plans for the hotel, the 119-page document can be found here.
With just a general thumbing through, there looks to be plans for an expansive bar in the building and a green roof. There are also detailed construction plans, including demolition, water and sewer and sidewalk planning.
Back in October 2019, there were plans for the development to become a condo complex, an announcement that led to live music venue Gypsy Sally’s leaving. Prior to IDI Group owning the building, Willco Residential entitled it to become a condo, all before CitizenM took ownership.
CitizenM Hotels were founded in 2008 in Amsterdam and according to their website, they are designed for modern travelers. The hotels have locations across three continents.
