Champlain Street Neighbors: Hotel Study Group is an unincorporated nonprofit association located in the heart of Adams Morgan. We are residents who live on Champlain Street who will be directly affected by a proposed 85 foot high luxury hotel right on our block, directly next to and across the street from our apartments.
We are largely immigrant families who have invested blood, sweat, and tears to make Adams Morgan the hip spot it is considered today.
We have lived through the rough times of this neighborhood and persevered despite crime and poverty so to forge a foundation of diversity and vitality that very few, if any other DC neighborhood possesses. Yet, despite our rich history and investments here, we have been left almost entirely out of the planning processes that will determine our future here in Adams Morgan. We want self-determination.
Recently, we have begun to recapture a sense of possibility to retain some affordability on Champlain Street. See the Press Release, click here.
Our settlement with the hotel investors has garnered funding to help us form housing cooperatives and to support our local micro-businesses.
CSN wants to protect what affordable housing and diversity we have left in our special neighborhood in Ward One. Can you help us?

We want our city to adopt these policies, “A Local Officials Guide to Immigrant Civic Engagement“
