For three years, Jeff Bezos has been renovating the former Textile Museum in Kalorama as his personal DC residence. It appears that those renovations are finally complete.
The Daily Mail reported that Bezos threw a lavish party this weekend at the 27,000 square-foot, 11-bedroom mansion at 2320-2330 S Street NW. The soiree, an after-party for the annual Alfalfa Club dinner, attracted attendees including Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Bill Gates, David Rubenstein, Norah O'Donnell, Steve Case and even actor Ben Stiller.
"Guests arrived in elegant suits and floor-length dresses for the swanky affair Saturday evening, but Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez were nowhere to be seen at the entrance to the 11-bedroom, 25-bathroom grand mansion," The Daily Mail reported.
The party is one of the first signs that the home renovation is now complete. UrbanTurf recently reported that, earlier this month, Bezos purchased the home across the street for $5 million.
