Rendering of new Eastbanc residences and library.
At an ANC meeting on Monday night, New York and Mexico-based TEN Arquitectos and Eastbanc unveiled the designs for the developer’s new West End projects. Above is the proposed rendering for the new library and the 174-unit condo project (currently referred to as Square 37) that will fill the 2300 block of L Street NW.
While Eastbanc’s Joe Sternlieb told the audience that the latest rendering is a work in progress, TEN Arquitectos principal Enrique Norton said that the design above incorporated feedback from residents at the Ritz Carlton (across the street) who worried that their views would be affected by the new project.
Below is the proposed rendering for Square 50 at 23rd and M Street that will include a new firehouse and 52 affordable rental units (reserved for those making 60% of area-median income), and possibly a squash club that will be open to the public.
The unveiling of the designs has been a long time coming as Eastbanc was originally chosen to redevelop the sites of the neighborhood’s fire house and library by the city almost a year ago.
Sternlieb said that if everything goes according to plan, ground will be broken on both sites in October/November 2012, construction will take about 27 months, and delivery will begin in early 2015.
