Too big!

Another twist in the saga of the Adams Morgan Hotel: The Office of Planning has issued its preliminary opinion on the application that’s been submitted to the Zoning Commission, and the developers won’t be pleased. The setdown report expresses dissatisfaction with the height of the building, along with 13 other points about the design. The first hearing on the project is on Monday, and considering how adamantly Brian Friedman has insisted the hotel is only viable at the current size, it looks like a long road ahead.
