Thanks to a reader passing on an update from JBG:

“Over the past several months, we’ve been meeting with local residents, businesses, and district planners to discuss and refine our plans for the Wardman Park site.

Thanks to valuable feedback from the community, we’ve made some meaningful changes to our applications. First, we have decided to withdraw our Stage 1 PUD application. Based on our conversations with District agencies and your feedback, we’ve determined that there is more work to do to develop a long-term plan for the site.

Secondly, we plan to submit an amendment to our Consolidated PUD application for the North Lawn Building that will revise the height and overall mass of the project to be more consistent with the surrounding architectural context and the Future Land Use map designation.

Finally, to better understand and weigh all available options for Wardman Park, we are going to be engaging in an active marketing process to sell the property, including the Marriott hotel. While the Marriott hotel has a long-term operating agreement with JBG, putting the property on the market will provide JBG and the community with a better understanding of all potential options for the future of Wardman Park.

With our single market focus in the Washington, DC metropolitan area for over 50 years, we are committed to furthering a plan for Woodley Park that will adhere to zoning regulations, uphold the character of the neighborhood and incorporate the input of our neighbors. We will continue to work diligently with the community and government agencies to ensure that our plans for Wardman Park establish an inclusive and aesthetically pleasing space for everyone.”
