Virgin Hotels, the hotel brand by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, has submitted plans to open and operate a new hotel in Washington D.C. The property, Virgin Hotels Washington D.C. Union Market, will feature 178 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites, the brand's flagship Commons Club, a panoramic rooftop lounge with an infinity pool, as well as multiple meetings and events spaces. Numerous art studios will be located on the second level and alley way, along with an outdoor garden featuring sculptures by local artists. The project, located at 411 New York Avenue, will be managed by Virgin Hotels and developed by D.B. Lee Development & Construction and Brook Rose Development. Expected to open in fall 2019, the property will reside in the city's emerging Union Market area.

"Washington DC is in the midst of a cultural renaissance, further establishing itself as a diverse global city that we feel will embrace the Virgin Hotel ethos and lifestyle." Added Dennis B. Lee, President of D.B. Lee Development and Construction. "The Union Market area is representative of that renaissance with significant and eclectic development embracing the historical fabric of the market and community. We feel that Virgin Hotel will not only become a hub of activity in Union Market, but will also greatly enhance the cultural growth of the city, potentially becoming an epicenter of creative spirit."
