The Peebles plan for 5th and I–rendering from 2014.

The Peebles Corporation and Walker Group are advancing plans to bring a mixed-use 12-story building with a roof deck and two levels of below-grade parking to a lot at 5th and I Streets, NW in Mt. Vernon Triangle. The project, slated to include a Standard International hotel as well as branded residences, will go before the Historic Preservation Review Board Oct. 1.

Peebles and the Walker Group won the right to redevelop the site, a former District government property, in May 2014. Last fall the developers agreed to a $28 million price tag.

As proposed the first eight floors will be a hotel and the top 4 floors will be residential. The ground floor will include the  hotel lobby entrance at the corner and a restaurant facing I Street.

The Historic Preservation Office staff report on the project calls for several architectural refinements, but recommended that the Historic Preservation Review Board generally find the plan compatible with the area.
