Clearing Makes Way for Adams Morgan Hotel

Champlain St NW. Site cleared in preparation of new hotel tower.
Initial work began on the Adams Morgan hotel project almost two months ago. Lots of major changes have come since then. The building formerly housing the offices of Washington City Paper, 2390 Champlain St NW, has now been cleared. That clearing makes way for the majority of the new construction to begin.

The hotel brand is The Line. Here's the website for The Line in Los Angeles... yeah. Wondering if we'll get anything this cool looking or just another neutral color tone / modern wall sconce hotel. 

Standard (King) rooms in the Los Angeles Line hotel seem to run from around $225/night for a weeknight, to well over $350/night for choice weekend nights. Of course, it's too early to know room rates for the DC hotel, but there will be 227 total rooms total. The rooms and other amenities will be in the new 7 story addition (where the City Paper building was), and also incorporated into the old First Church of Christ, Scientist building facing Euclid St NW. I'll post more photos as the construction moves along.
