JBG has revealed the latest look for the Florida Avenue apartment project that the firm has on the boards.

The company recently posted new renderings of the 242-unit apartment complex that will be located just south of Florida Avenue between 7th and 9th Streets NW. JBG bought the near-vacant plot of land last year and hopes to break ground on the project in 2013, and construction will likely take about 22 months. Seattle-based architects Miller Hull won the competition to design the building.

The new development is divided between two buildings separated by 8th Street, which JBG plans to fill with sidewalk seating and pedestrian friendliness. UrbanTurf reported on an earlier version of the design in February. In those plans, the buildings strongly resembled each other; now, they look more distinct. See old and new renderings below.

    As someone who lived in one of these newer JBG type buildings, the rendering would be great, but the windows should actually open. Just the small tilting windows on the side kind of stink.

    I just hope the "new" rendering is more accurate in terms of color. Not a fan of army green... love the idea of something new at that corner though!

    Love the new look! I hope the ANC doesn't hold it up.

    The project is a great win for the city. Those particular renderings? Maybe not so much...
