Project outcome

The Trump Organization, operating as Trump Old Post Office, LLC, awarded its construction management contract for the redevelopment of the historic Old Post Office building to Lendlease.

Lendlease managed the construction, transforming the historic structure into the Trump International Hotel Washington DC, a luxury hotel sitting atop prime real estate along Pennsylvania Avenue between the U.S. Capitol and the White House.

Many of the iconic features of the historic Old Post Office building were preserved during its transformation into a luxury hotel, which features 262 guestrooms and suites averaging more than 600 square feet, making them the largest in Washington D.C., with lofty 16-foot ceilings, soaring windows, beautifully restored historic millwork, and glittering crystal sconces and chandeliers. In addition, two extraordinary Presidential Suites are located in the historic former offices of the Postmaster General. At 3,500 and 5,000 square feet, the three-bedroom suites are among the largest in the country. 

The Cortile is a 200-foot atrium that functions as the hotel's gathering place, comprising the grand lobby and lounge. A 36,000 square foot meeting and event space includes an opulent 13,000 square foot Grand Ballroom with double high ceilings. The hotel also contains a restaurant, a 5,000 square foot super luxury spa and state-of-the-art fitness center, a library, museum, and indoor and outdoor gardens.

The Old Post Office's clock tower, which is managed by the National Park Service, continues to offer panoramic views of Washington DC and showcase the refurbished' Bells of Congress.
