Adams Morgan Hotel Project Finally Getting Started

March 9, 2015

For those who may have been following the Adams Morgan hotel development project, I learned at last weeks ANC 1C meeting that everything is now a go and work will likely begin this week. Work will focus on razing the old City Paper building located at 2390 Champlain Street, NW. While there isn’t much posted on the Adams Morgan Historic Hotel Web site at this time, as the project moves forward the site is to include more updates.

Getting from concept to construction has been a long road. The 42 has a good overview on where things were in May 2013 as does the Washington Business Journal from May 2014 for those wanting more background on the development. One aspect that I particularly like is the adaptive reuse of the former First Church of Christ, Scientist building at 1770 Euclid Street, NW. The former church building was placed on the National Register of Historic Placed on January 27, 2015.
