Thompson Hotel Set for D.C.
Studios Architecture, Parts and Labor Design to head design of The Yards property
Studio Architecture and Part and Labor have been tapped to design a Thompson Hotels project slated for Washington D.C.’s The Yards. Set to open in 2020, the 225-key Navy Yard-inspired Thompson D.C is the industrial neighborhood’s first hotel development.
The hotel will incorporate industrial patterns and textures found in historic naval structures. Copper, metal, emerald and ivory tones will be implemented throughout the building’s interiors and guest rooms. Dark iron bricks, metal panels and a grey façade will make up the building’s exterior.
Developed by real estate investment group JW Capital Partners and private equity investment group Geolo Capital, Thompson D.C. will showcase 38 suites, including two Thompson Suites. The space will also feature signature F&B venues, such as a ground-level restaurant, lobby lounge and a rooftop bar.
“We couldn't be more thrilled to bring Thompson Hotels’ brand of luxury lifestyle hotels to The Yards in Washington, D.C., says John Pritzker, founding partner and director of Geolo Capital. “The historic nature of the Navy Yard, combined with Forest City’s vision for and investment in the neighborhood, makes this one of the most dynamic hospitality opportunities in America.”
The Thompson portfolio of lifestyle hotels includes recently-opened properties in New York; Chicago; Nashville; Seattle; Toronto; Los Cabos, Mexico; and Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya. Properties currently under development include Thompson Hollywood in California, and three projects in Texas: Thompson Dallas at The Drever, Thompson San Antonio and Thompson Houston.
