Trump International Hotel – Washington, DC

The Trump International Hotel project involves the renovation of The Old Post Office Pavilion, a historic site on Pennsylvania Avenue just blocks from the White House. Originally built between 1892 and 1899, the building has rarely been used as a post office and narrowly escaped demolition in the 1930s only because there was no money for razing during the Great Depression. When the building was threatened again in the 1960s a group of citizens banded together to save it for its architectural value and it was placed on the national registry of historic places in 1973. The building was declared surplus space by the federal government in 2012, and the Trump Organization won a contract from the General Services Administration to renovate and repurpose the site.  christopher is a part of an extensive team hired by the Trump Organization which includes architects, construction firms and civil engineers. christopher is providing topographic and utility surveys, schematic site plans, LEED coordination, site planning and preliminary stormwater management for the Trump International Hotel project.

The Trump International Hotel, Washington D.C. will feature 270 guestrooms averaging 600 square feet, the largest in the Capitol. It will include multi-bedroom suites at 3,500 and 5,000 square feet. Trump International Hotel will include a total of 36,000 square feet of meeting and event space including a 13,000 square-foot Grand Ballroom, as well as a 5,000 square-foot luxury spa and fitness center. Thanks to its premiere location, the hotel will also feature views of the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument. Groundbreaking on the site took place in July 2014, during which a spokesperson from The Trump Collection announced that the hotel will be open to the public by November 2016.
