There are plans to rezone a 5.5-acre site at the corner of Michigan Avenue NE and Irving Street NE in the Brookland neighborhood in order to make way for a mixed-use project with residential, hotel, and commercial uses, as reported by Bisnow.
With hopes to break ground within 12 to 14 months, the first phase will entail a 260-room hotel (dual-brand with Residence Inn and Courtyard Marriott) with up to 5,000 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant. The next phase would bring an approximately 600,000-square-foot project with ground-floor retail topped by residential. Bisnow further reported that the final two phases could feature residential and either hotel or office space.
Past plans for the site have included a conference center for Catholic University of America, but it ended up getting canceled. There were also plans for a 314-room hotel with convention and meeting space in 2009.
The developers behind this new project are Buchanan Partners and Pinkard Group, through the entity MIRV Holdings LLC, with Perkins Eastman as the architect.
