Four years ago, Arlington County approved a proposal to add 22 stories above an existing retail structure at 2351 Richmond Highway (map).

Now, a new developer is helming the project and is putting forth slightly different plans for the site.

MRP Realty has filed documents with the county to propose a project that would deliver 334 units rather than the previously-approved 287, and would reduce the retail to 7,625 square feet from 21,836 square feet. The building would still be a total of 24 stories plus penthouse, albeit with a height closer to 294 feet rather than 270 feet.

There would also be 322 spaces of parking on three below-grade levels, along with 134 bicycle spaces for residents; the previous approval was for 242 residential parking spaces and use of 100 parking spaces next door for retail.

The units would range from 402 to 1,314 square feet in size. Amenities would include a pet spa, a gym, a clubroom, a rooftop pool deck, and a co-working lounge. SK+I Architecture is the architect.
