(POOL/CNN) – Donald Trump did not make it to the White House as the president, but his next hotel may not be far away.

The Trump Organization has plans to redevelop Washington's historic Old Post Office into a luxury hotel, according to an agreement with the General Services Administration.

The deal is still subject to review by Congress.

The Old Post Office is the second-tallest structure on Pennsylvania Avenue, and just a few blocks away from the White House itself. It is currently being used as a government office space.

The deal calls for redevelopment to begin in 2014, with the hotel opening in 2016.
