Cooper Carry was enlisted by Songy Partners to convert a 1960s office building into an 11-story Hyatt Place hotel. The adaptive reuse project includes 164 keys, conferencing space, a rooftop terrace for private events, a fitness center, a small restaurant, and a bar. While the linear floor plates of the existing office building lent themselves to typical guest room layouts, the narrow site necessitated that Cooper Carry devise creative solutions to allow natural light into the public spaces. The project includes one level of below-grade conference spaces as well as two levels of below-grade parking. Given its close proximity to the White House in Downtown DC, the hotel’s location makes it ideal for business, weekend, and SMERF (Social, Military, Educational, Religious, Fraternal) travel.
