Watergate Hotel Renovation
Location: 2650 Virginia Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20037
Owner:Euro Capital Properties, LLC
Contract Amount:$44.3 million
Date of Completion:June 2016
Grunley is performing a complete renovation of the 277,000 square foot Watergate Hotel. It is one of five buildings that comprise the Watergate complex and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The renovation project will include demolishing and fitting-out the interior of the 13-story, unoccupied building. High-end luxury finishes will be installed throughout, most coming from overseas. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems will be replaced. Among the amenities in the new five-star, 348-room hotel will be two restaurants (one with a terrace), two ballrooms with substantial structural work, a rooftop lounge, and five new large terraces. The exterior will largely remain unchanged due to the building’s historic status. However, all of the windows will be replaced and concrete balconies repaired and painted.
