WASHINGTON FIRM WORKS TO RENOVATE TWO APARTMENT COMPLEXES
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Washington-based Urban Investment Partners will spend $2 million to renovate the century-old Absecon, a foreclosed 21-unit apartment complex located at 1706 T St. N.W. in Washington. The firm purchased the building last year for $60 million and will deliver the property, which is to be renamed The Shelby, next June. In addition to expanding the building’s capacity to 24 units, UIP will install wireless Internet capabilities and security cameras. Renovations are about to get underway on the 63-unit Shelburne complex, located on 17th Street in Washington. When it delivers at the end of this month, the building will feature a new lobby, a new front door with an awning, hallway improvements and a laundry room.
