Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Turner Construction Company was recently awarded a contract to build the Hilton Garden Inn – M Street in Washington, DC.
“Turner is thrilled to partner with PerStarOTO M Street Partners on this new hotel project in Downtown DC,” said Ken Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Turner’s Washington, DC office. “As a DC contractor, Turner is excited to be a part of this high-visibility project that will inevitably contribute to the already vibrant West End community.”
The hotel site is located at 2201 M Street, NW on land formerly occupied by the Nigerian Embassy and a second smaller retail building.
In order to best address the 16,480 SF urban location and sophisticated neighborhood, the $30 million hotel will include 238 guestrooms and adopt only some of the standard prototype Hilton Garden Inn brand features. The Hilton Garden Inn M Street will also contain a restaurant operated by a third party. Details about the restaurant are set to be announced in the coming months, and it will be constructed under the same contract as the hotel. The Hilton Garden Inn was awarded to Turner Construction after an extensive proposal and presentation process.
