Lawsuit Threatens Convention Center Hotel

The convention center hotel saga continues. The Washington Business Journal reports that the JBG Cos., through an entity called Wardman Investor LLC, is asking a D.C. judge to delay construction of the hotel while JBG disputes the contracting process. JBG charges that the city violated D.C. procurement law in the process that lead to the 99-year lease with Marriott.

The article also notes that "no bonds have yet been issued to finance the [hotel's] construction," which was expected to commence in the coming month or so.

Let's hope that the current lawsuit is tossed out quickly -- like D.C. Attorney General Peter Nickles says it should be -- and that financing and ground breaking occur expeditiously.

Get it built already!
