The Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) is moving forward with a proposal it previewed to redevelop part of the Marbella Apartments.
APAH has filed a zoning application to replace 72 units across a pair of low-rise apartment buildings at 1300 and 1305 N Pierce Street (map) with two 12-story buildings, delivering a total of 561 affordable units.
The first phase would deliver 193 "family units" and 132 senior units along with 163 below-grade parking spaces and 130 bicycle spaces. The second phase would deliver 236 apartments, 118 below-grade parking spaces, and 96 bicycle spaces. The unit mix would span from one- to three-bedrooms.
Both buildings would have one or two shared laundry rooms on each floor, and amenities would include multiple multipurpose rooms, workspaces, courtyards, a gym, and terraces on the 11th floor. There would also be rooftop solar arrays. Additional renderings, courtesy of KGD Architecture, are below.
