There are redevelopment plans in the works for one of the oldest motel sites in Rosslyn.
An affiliate of Monument Realty is under contract on the former Inn of Rosslyn site at 1601 Fairfax Drive (map) and has filed plans with Arlington County to redevelop it into an eight-story, 141-unit residential project. The building, designed by DCS Design, will have an underground parking garage with 87 spaces, but no retail. JBG SMITH is selling the site.
The Inn of Rosslyn, formerly know at Motel 50, closed in January 2021 after a sixty year run. To pay homage to the building's former life, the new development will draw from the architecture of the former motel.
"The proposed building design is partly influenced by the existing distinctive bold '50' sign of the Inn of Rosslyn," according to documents filed with the County. "The main building facade facing Fairfax Drive and Route 50 mimics the '50' sign with two portions forming strong planes which cantilever over the building edges similar to how the '50' sign cantilevers over the edge of the motel building."
