11-Story, 198-Unit Apartment Project Approved For Crystal City: Figure 1

An 11-story, 198-unit apartment building will be going up at 1720 S. Eads Street in Crystal City, reports ARLnow, after the Arlington County Board approved plans for the project on Saturday.

The building is part of an attempt to make Crystal City, currently full of massive buildings and sidewalks, a more walkable, inviting neighborhood. To that end, the project will include public open space, improved sidewalks and 16 affordable units. The building is located about one block from the Crystal City Metro.

Notable features include an electric car charging station, a landscaped roof and other design elements that bring the building to LEED Silver certification. There will also be a 176-space parking garage in the project being developed by Kettler.
