Molinaro Koger Structures Sale of
Sheraton Hotel Washington, DC 

McLean, Virginia – June 18, 2004 – The investment community’s voracious appetite for business-class hotels located in first-tier markets is demonstrated by Molinaro Koger’s announcement today that the firm structured the rapid sale of the Sheraton Hotel, Washington, DC, on behalf of the Stephen A. Goldberg Company, a prominent DC real estate development company, in the wake of highly competitive bidding.

Purchased by an affiliate of The JBG Companies of Chevy Chase, Maryland, for an undisclosed amount, the 265–room property is located on 12th and K Streets in an upscale DC business district. JBG is currently developing a Class A office building across from the hotel site. 

The hotel features celebrity chef Tom Powers’ restaurant Corduroy, a roof-top pool, business center, fully equipped fitness center, underground parking and 9,400 square feet of event space. 

“This first-class asset attracted significant investor attention,” commented Mark Morris, vice president of Molinaro Koger who structured the transaction. 

“Hotel properties in the District typically generate strong interest and this hotel, due to it excellent location and combined with strategic marketing of the asset resulted in competitive bidding,” said Mr. Morris. 

“The DC market is performing well and with high barriers to entry for well-located full-service properties, the Sheraton was a prime acquisition.”
