Who's Behind The New Hotel on K Street?

A new boutique hotel, the Hyatt Place, is opening on K Street, and Reed Smith partner and new markets tax credit group chair Olivia Shay-Byrne did the real estate-related legal work on the deal. It's something she does regularly, and it's why she's gonna be an ace speaker at the April 14 event on Real Estate Strategies for Associations and Law Firms. Sign up here.


Olivia tells us the upscale hotel is located in a converted office building. The news has been tightly under wraps for the last year and a half. Olivia's other ongoing projects include: working with the owners of properties selling a block in Union Market, public private partnership transactions, andwith interests rates at a lownumerous refinancings. As interest rates bottom out, it creates questions and opportunities for clients, and for law firms whose leases are up. Olivia will be discussing those issues and more at Real Estate Strategies for Associations and Law Firms on April 14 at the Renaissance DC.
