The renovation of a historic residential Wardman apartment building near the Zoo is nearing completion, and UrbanTurf recently got a sense of what the new building will look like.

In 2014, CAS Riegler and Commonwealth Residential purchased South Cathedral Mansions at 2900 Connecticut Avenue NW (map) for $70 million. For the last year, the partnership along with Snead Construction has been renovating and expanding the building into a 165-unit apartment project.

The renovated units will range from one-bedrooms to three-bedroom, three-bath apartments. Amenities at the development will include a spa and gym, a dog run, and an outdoor pool and lounge. The “Carriage House” is the structure in the rear of the property that was repurposed into an indoor/outdoor lounge with a full test kitchen, grills and a coffee bar.

Oculus Realty will start leasing apartments at the new building next month. See more images of the project below.

    More rentals. Ugh, esp. as this is an historic building with sorely needed 3BR units.
