A new 278-room InterContinental hotel will be built in Washington, D.C., part of The Wharf, a mixed-use waterfront development on the Washington Channel. To open toward the end of 2017, the property will feature a signature restaurant, a spa, a rooftop pool and a bar, plus 17,000 square feet of meeting space with water views. A lofty lounge will offer views of the city and the waterfront. The developers will seek LEED Silver certification for the property.
