The store is located at 801 K St. NW, Washington, DC 20001. n July 2015 Events DC announced that its board of directors and Apple had finalized terms for the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia to execute a lease with the Cupertino, California-based company for the establishment of a retail store. Apple’s 10-year lease in Mount Vernon Square provides for two five-year extension options.

Under the lease terms, the location would be at Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square, the center of a transformed convention and entertainment district in downtown DC. What’s more, a Tri-Party Agreement among Events DC, Apple and the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. will also be executed, memorializing a co-location of Apple and the Historical Society as part of the reimagined vision at Carnegie Library.
