Residential Units for Hilton Washington?


As a part of a larger hotel revitalization project, the Hilton Washington, north of Dupont Circle, could be seeing residential units in the near future. After buying the Hilton for $290 million in May, L.A.-based Lowe Enterprises Inc. and Beverly Hills-based Canyon-Johnson Urban Funds LLC are considering adding a yet-to-be-determined number of residential units to the 1,119-room hotel.

Harmar Thompson, Senior Vice President of Lowe Enterprises said developers are in the process of doing the initial schematic design and massing. He added, “We haven’t formalized anything yet; we are going through detailed work with the community and the Office of Planning.” According to Thompson, more details, including a decision on condos vs. apartments and number of units, will be announced in September.

The hotel has some great amenities - I'm sure that'll be a huge selling point.

I would like to, if possible, pay for a link in your real estate links section. Something like Connecticut Waterfront Property I would like to know what you would charge me for one year. I don’t expect to get any clicks or to take any business away from you. I only want to improve my page ranking in Connecticut. Would you please let me know either way. My email is ickyb397 -at- yahoo com.

They are planning a huge new ultra-modern tower building to be built right on the corner of 19th and Florida. The pool and grounds will be destroyed. One parking place for every two units. Neighborhood is intensely set against it. The hotel has been a BAD neighbor for so long, why would they welcome more development and disruption? I just think the owners/developers are insanely greedy.

Because of the killer views, these units will be priced out of reach to everyone but the super rich (likely foreign and dignitary.)
