Washington D. C. Hotel Monaco
Washington , D.C.
Cost: $30,000,000 | Previous Use: Government Offices | Current Use: Hotel
The General Post Office, first designed by Robert Mills in 1842, is a National Historic Landmark. By the 1980s, however, the building was vacant and dilapidated. In the early 2000s, through the General Services Agency, the federal government used Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act to lease the property for redevelopment. Heritage joined the Kimpton Group in a $30 million project to create the 184-room Hotel Monaco. Among other awards, the project received the GSA Heritage Award for Conservation and Restoration.
