443 Eye Apartments to Break Ground in August

Recent rendering of EQR apartments

According to DCMud the apartment project from EQR that recently displaced BicycleSPACE and Gold Leaf Studios at 443-459 I Street NW will break ground this August. The development will restore two 3-story townhouses and a 2-story autobody garage while building vertically around those structures. When complete the buildings will offer 15,000 square feet of retail space.

The rendering recently circulating on the internet lacks much detailing. That may be because its just an early drawing or perhaps the architecture of the towers are being slightly simplified as it is a mid-block building. Either way, the renderings from 2008 when Walnut Street owned the project seemed a little more inspired.
