Michael Neibauer of the Washington Business Journal has a great scoop on the future of the Latham Hotel property: It’s being converted to apartments. And not just typical apartments: mini-apartments.

Neibauer writes:

SB-Urban, a new venture from Mike Balaban and Frank Saul III, has a contract to purchase The Latham from Texas-based Lone Star Funds, numerous sources familiar with the deal confirm … a site plan that accompanies the [letter to the Zoning Administrator] suggests there will be roughly 122, most in the 250- to 400-square-foot range. The Latham Hotel had 133 rooms.
