An aerial rendering of the proposed development
Two years after developer Penzance first proposed to redevelop Rosslyn Highlands Park at 1559 Wilson Boulevard (map), an application to re-zone and redevelop the 118,311 square-foot site is on the table.
Penzance will replace an office building on a parcel they own at 1555 Wilson Boulevard with a 270 foot-tall mixed-use project and construct a 240 foot-tall building on city-owned land adjacent to Rosslyn Highlands Park, delivering a new Fire Station 10, retail and more than 900 residential units.
North Pierce Street will also be extended to bisect the site, providing vehicular access to four levels of underground parking with over 1,000 spaces that will serve the fire station, residents, retail shoppers and the nearby school.

Hickok Cole Architects designed the taller East Building, which is separated into a North and a South Tower and includes 18,590 square feet of retail, a third floor terrace and a bi-level rooftop terrace with pool, grills and seating areas.
The North Tower will contain 105 units, while the South Tower will have 456 units (73 studios, 26 junior one bedrooms, 199 one bedrooms, 26 one bedroom plus-dens, 24 junior two bedrooms, 85 two bedrooms and 23 two bedroom plus-dens) and the newly-constructed fire station.

The 240 foot-tall West Building was designed by Studios Architecture, and would include 351 residential units (60 studios, 143 one bedrooms, 43 one bedroom plus-dens, 102 two bedrooms and 3 two bedroom plus-dens) atop 6,753 square feet of retail. The project will also deliver over 400 bicycle spaces.
The Site Plan Review Committee will be examining the particulars of the site in November and December. The Arlington County Planning Commission is expected to review the plan in February.
