BBGM-Designed Hotel Opening in Washington, D.C.

BBGM-Designed Hotel Opening in Washington, D.C.

BBGM designed the new 154-room Cambria hotel located at 69 Q Street SW in downtown Washington, DC, in collaboration with Washington, D.C.-based developer Donohoe Development.  The hotel resides within three miles of the U.S. Capitol, the National Mall, Smithsonian museums and other major attractions.  The Cambria hotel includes a full-service restaurant & bar, scenic rooftop bar with expansive exterior terrace with views of the Capital Skyline, Nationals Park and Audi Field.  It also features a fitness center and 2,500 square feet of multi-function meeting space.  The welcoming lobby with an expansive LED wall creates a dynamic experience.  The hotel is designed to LEED Silver and includes site rainwater management, electric car charging station, green roof and solar panel array.  BBGM served as the Architect for the project. 

12&C Hotel Underway

12&C Hotel Underway

The project is a 12-story hotel with 130 guestrooms, fitness center, meeting rooms and a roof top lounge.  Located at the corner of 12th and C Street, the project is developed by Pacific Star Capital.  The project site is challenging since the building is to sit atop a WMATA (metro) substation that limited the placement of tower structure.  This required a traditionally-designed building to incorporate the use of three story trusses spanning over the substation to support its tower of guestrooms.  We designed a unique building in spite of several challenges.  

BBGM Gives Back to the Community with 5th Annual U.S. Vet Duffle Bags

BBGM Gives Back to the Community with 5th Annual U.S. Vet Duffle Bags

Our 5th Annual Us Vet Duffle Bag Gifts was another Success.  Led by Alfred H. Gooden III, he and his team rallied to Thank Our Veterans in shelters for their service.  The team jumped to action to provide much needed items in duffle bags for 48 (8 women and 40 men) veterans.  Alfred delivered them and was able to see some familiar faces and new faces who were so excited and appreciative.  One female veteran tearfully thanked Al and said, “It’s so nice to know people know we are here and we served for love of country.”  We keep close to our motivation what one of the veterans served told Al a couple years ago; "We are not looking for a hand out just looking for a lifting hand."
