A new 160-room Homewood Suites hotel is on its way to Mt. Vernon Triangle with a delivery expected by February 2016. District Source reported that the construction site at 465 New York Avenue NW recently completed placing the final beams at the top of the development. The 95,303 square-foot hotel will span 13 stories and will feature three levels of below-grade parking. In March of 2014, Commissioner Marge Maceda was quoted as saying that she was "scared" that the development would create a "traffic nightmare." To avoid this, the developer constructed a median island where L Street NW meets New York Avenue NW to ensure that traffic exiting the development's garage will proceed to the safest route. Expect more updates in the future with renderings.
