The Arlington County Board unanimously approved the proposed development of the Village Center site at 940 S. George Mason Drive (map) at the board’s monthly meeting this past weekend. The nearly three acre site at Columbia Pike and South George Mason Drive, currently home to a grocery store, will be redeveloped by Orr Partners into a mixed-use apartment building, delivering a new grocery store, retail, and over 350 residential units.

The County Board approvals on Saturday were two-fold. It approved the rezoning of one of the three parcels from an R-6 single-family dwelling district to a Columbia Pike-Form Based Code district. The board also approved the plan to construct a six-story, 365-unit apartment building with a total of 81,530 square feet of ground-floor retail, including a 50,000 square-foot grocery store. Adjacent to the building will be a 22,150 square-foot public square which will feature art, a garden, and a water feature. The project will also have three levels of underground parking totaling 604 spaces.

KGD Architects designed the development.
