How many workers does it take to build a convention center hotel? Thousands, and the developers of the Marriott Marquis will soon have places to house them. A permit was issued Friday to install 17 office trailers on a paved lot at 929 L St. NW, to house the Marquis construction staff — roughly 1,600 people working feverishly on the hotel at 901 Massachusetts Ave. NW.

The 1,175-room Marquis, with more than 100,000 square feet of function space, is expected to open on May 1, 2014. The project went above ground in August after a 21-month mining operation.
 
As for other building permits issued by the District on Nov. 9:

822 H St. NE: The existing storefront will be replaced. Stan`s Inc., a discount clothing store, received an $85,000 grant from the District as part of the H Street NE Retail Priority Area Project grant program.

113 Rhode Island Ave. NW: The first floor of this Bloomingdale building will be converted from barbershop (the former Showtime Hair Salon) to tavern. The Showtime Lounge, a venture led by neighborhood resident Paul Vivari, will be a coffee shop by day and community gathering spot, with alcohol and finger foods, by night.
      
1025 Thomas Jefferson St. NW: The JBG Cos. was awarded a permit to renovate more than 30,000 square feet on the third floor for a tenant.
       
2400 14th St. NW: UDR Inc. will install a Gunite swimming pool on the 9th floor of its Capitol View on 14th apartment building on the U Street corridor. The 7,720-gallon pool will be 12 feet 6 inches wide by 29 feet 10 inches long and only 3 feet deep throughout.
