One of D.C.'s historic inns, the Morrison-Clark will hold a Q&A session tomorrow night regarding their upcoming expansion. The Victorian Mansion turned restaurant and hotel (and only inn in D.C. listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is planning to expand by 43,000 square feet and incorporate nearby historic structures. Currently, the Morrison-Clark, which had initially been two separate townhomes, offers 54 rooms is looking to more than double that with 56 rooms spanning six stories. However, one of those neighboring historic structures, a 1700s rear carriage house, experienced roof collapse during pre-construction. Yikes. Whether that and other concerns about preservation will color the meeting with the Morrison Clark General Manager, Forrester Construction, RP Properties and the architect from Architecture Inc. will be revealed tomorrow. The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Hotel on 1015 L Street NW.
