Rendering of 670 North Glebe Road.
This Saturday, the redevelopment of a gas station and parking lot on Glebe Road will go before the Arlington County Board for approval.
Penrose Group has plans to the raze the Exxon station at 670 North Glebe Road (map), and construct a six-story, 173-unit residential project in its place. The development would have ground-floor retail, as well as 177 below-grade parking spaces.
The county manager is recommending that the Board approve the proposed rezoning and site plan at the October monthly meeting this coming weekend.
From the staff report:
“Staff supports the applicant’s request for modification because of the small amount of retail space and the likelihood of its serving users in the immediate vicinity of the site, and the availability of parking in the Ballston area. The applicant’s proposal implements the ‘High-Medium Residential Mixed-Use’ General Land Use Plan (GLUP) designation in that it provides a transition from the high-density commercial core of Ballston to medium-density residential uses to the west.”
