Plans for 63 rooms, 38 parking spaces
A project at the Olympic Athletic Club is underway that will add a six-story hotel and parking to the side annex area of the historic building.
The proposed structure has 63 hotel rooms and 38 spaces for parking -- an addition of 16,000 square feet for the athletic club.
The planned site is the annex at 5301 Leary Ave. N.W. It was built in 1980 and is part of a building complex connected to the Olympic Athletic Club: a three-story building on Ballard Avenue Northwest. The overall plan is to replace the annex with the new structure. Skidmore Janette is the architect for the project.
The Department of Planning and Development held an early design guidance meeting early last December to discuss design considerations.
OAC owner, Jim Riggle, is part of a group that in 2013 opened a 29-room boutique hotel on the same block, at 5214 Ballard Ave. N.W. The hotel would share underground parking with the new structure.More ›
