The Apple Store in the works for DC's Carnegie Library could be open by the end of 2018.

At a hearing on Monday, Events DC president Greg O'Dell told the DC Council on Monday that the store could be open by late fall or early winter of 2018. 

Last year, the National Capital Planning Commission granted conceptual approval for Apple and Events DC to restore and transform the building formerly known as the Central Public Library into retail space for Apple and office and exhibit spaces for the Historical Society of Washington. Beyer Blinder Belle Architects is helming the renovation process, which will also make minor improvements to the surrounding Mount Vernon Square grounds.

Designed by Ackerman and Ross in a neoclassical style, the library was constructed in 1903 at 801 K Street NW (map) and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969. The exterior, the Beaux Arts interior and the surrounding square all look much as they did when originally built.
