HPRB Approves Hinckley Hilton...Again

Plans to expand one of Washington's newest landmarks, the Washington ("Hinckley") Hilton Hotel, have been authorized by the District's Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) for the second time in as many months. Apparently, after last month's approval, architects Beyer Blinder Belle tweaked their design - presumably, in order to appease local organizations, such as the Kalorama Citizens Association and Dupont ANC, that questioned the project's impact and design sense. Subsequently, hotel owners Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group were forced back before the HPRB, which after approving the project, subsequently voted to be rid of the hotel once and for all by delegating approval of any further changes to their staff.

What a shame. It had the city's best pool, by far, perched above downtown with great views and a stunning layout. I will miss thee.
