Third Hotel in Triangle Possible

444 and 446 K St NWA third hotel has become a possibility in the Mount Vernon Triangle in addition to the Hampton Inn and the future Standard Hotel.  The property owner, Han Jan, of the historic row houses at 444 and 446 K St NW have modified their plans for an apartment building and may be constructing a hotel due to the smaller footprint the Historic Preservation Board requested for the site. Currently, the owner is working with the architecture firm of Studio Crowley Hall but no other presentations have been scheduled at this time beyond the June Historic Preservation hearing.
