More residential development could be in the works near the Landmark Block near Courthouse Metro. 

Greystar Development East has filed for a conceptual site plan review to construct a 171 foot-tall building with 225 apartments above approximately 4,000 square feet of retail at 2038 Wilson Boulevard (map). The 16-story development would also include bicycle storage and 74 parking spaces on two below-grade levels, including some tandem spaces.

The site, for which zoning allows "Medium Office-Apartment-Hotel" development, was approved for a 12-story office building five years ago. If Arlington County finds the proposed height and use of the development to be appropriate, a site plan amendment application may follow.

The proposed project would also use bonus density to achieve the unit count; without it, the building would have 169 units, 104 of which come courtesy of a transfer of development rights that also formed the basis of the office project. Some of that additional density would be in exchange for the development dedicating a portion of Wilson Boulevard, which currently has an easement, to the County's control.

Greystar is also the developer for the Landmark Block, also designed by Cooper Carry.
