630-Unit Development at Americana Hotel Site to Go Before Arlington Board
The big residential plans in the works for the Americana hotel site in Arlington could get a key thumbs up this coming weekend.
JBG Smith's redevelopment of the former hotel at 1400 Richmond Highway (map) will go before the Arlington County Board on Saturday. The redevelopment consists of a by-right 19-story building with 636 residential units above retail. There will be 191 on-site parking spaces across two below-grade parking levels, and an additional 200 spaces provided at the garage from The Bartlett apartments across the street. bKL Architecture is the designer.

JBG Smith acquired the hotel in late 2020, not long after it closed its doors. The firm has committed over $18 million in community benefits, including:
- $7.5 million to the Affordable Housing Investment Fund in exchange for additional density;
- $6.1 million to off-site public space planning in the Crystal City Coordinated Redevelopment District;
- $2.5 million for off-site transportation improvements in the same district and frontage improvements consistent with the South Eads Street Complete Street project and the VDOT Route 1 Multimodal Improvements Study; and
- The base affordable housing contribution (choice of $2.1 million, or approximately 15 on-site units, 22 off-site nearby units, or 29 off-site units).
