GMS is a member of the redevelopment team working with this Hotel Company to establish their first property in the US. This hotel is composed of a nine story tower constructed in 1962 with a covered roof top pool with integrated below-grade parking garage and a five story building constructed in 1942.
“Given that D.C. has the history of so many social movements, and people still travel here annually to lobby and march to make a difference, I thought D.C. would be the perfect place to plant our flagship,” says Katherine Lo, founder of Eaton Workshop. “I want to offer Eaton as the home or living room, so to speak, to today’s contemporary movements.”
