Holiday Inn Express Mount Vernon Triangle Breaks Ground in Washington, DC

Holiday Inn Express Mount Vernon Triangle Breaks Ground in Washington, DC

Washington, D.C.-based developer Lima Hotels LLC has broken ground on the new 247-room Holiday Inn Express hotel planned for downtown Washington, DC.  The hotel resides in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood of Washington, DC, and will include a business center, fitness center and 1,500 square feet of meeting space.  BBGM is serving as the Architect for the project. 

The upcoming development has garnered industry-wide press coverage, including the likes of Hotel Business, GlobeSt, Washington Business Journal and Hotel Online

An excerpt from the recent GlobeSt article:

Projected to open in the fourth quarter of 2020, the 14-story hotel will be located at 317 K Street, NW on the northeast corner of 4th and K. BBGM Architects of Washington, DC, is the project architect. Urgo Hotels & Resorts of Bethesda, MD will operate the property. Kinsley Construction, Inc. is the general contractor.

Sequar announced plans for a hotel on the site, to be called Lima, in 2015. The original plan was for 200 hotel rooms with 30 apartments on the upper floors. A 2016 change in zoning regulations allowed 100% hotel use. A small commercial building and auto body shop on the site will be demolished to pave way for the construction.

The hotel will feature the brand’s newest Formula Blue design solution, and a bold, distinctive exterior design that complements the surrounding neighborhood elements while establishing a unique identity. The hotel is planned to open in 2020.
