Columbia Place, a 12-story mixed-use development in Washington, D.C. features hospitality, residential, and retail offerings in the Shaw Historic District. The recently completed adaptive reuse project incorporates eight historic buildings, one of which is a Civil War-era home, into the design.
The $230 million, Cooper Carry-designed project includes a dual-branded, 4-star hotel with two levels of underground parking and more than 200 apartments. The hotel component comprises a 357-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel and a 147-room Residence Inn. The apartment component, dubbed The Lurgan, includes 203 units available in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts. Additionally, the development includes 3,000 sf of ground-floor retail, 4,000 sf of rooftop amenities, and 10,000 sf of shared meeting space.
The Civil War-era home, a three-story townhome, was moved from its original location and incorporated into the project within the dual-bran hotel. The existing Lurgan building, as well as seven other historic buildings, were restored and reused for street-level retail to enhance the residential experience and preserve the area’s historic character.
