Plugging a hole at the corner of 4th and K Streets, NW, construction has topped out at the 14-story building that will become a 247-room Holiday Inn Express when it completes, perhaps as early as this year. Kinsley construction, which started work on the project one year ago, is replacing Henry's Soul Cafe on the corner, across from the Museum Square subsidized housing project, a hoped-for redevelopment project whose tenants have stymied redevelopment plans of its own site. The in-fill project furthers the high-density potential of Mt. Vernon Triangle, with only few vacant lots remaining on K Street since the completion of development of the 400 block of K Street by the Wilkes Company and Quadrangle Development.
Habte Sequar, who previously built several small and mid-sized residential buildings in northwest DC, assembled several small lots to create the 10,700 s.f. site. Holiday Inn currently operates more than 2700 hotels worldwide; Urgo Hotels & Resorts of Bethesda will operate the hotel.
