One of the biggest redevelopment plans on the boards for Northern Virginia will go before the Arlington County Board this coming weekend.

Rosslyn Plaza is currently a 7.65 acre site on the east side of Rosslyn (map) that consists of office and residential buildings constructed in the 1960s and 70s, as well as the Spectrum Theatre.

Vornado/Charles E. Smith and Gould Property Company have been working on plans to completely redevelop the site with a series of new office and residential buildings, a hotel and a large public plaza. The timeline for the redevelopment is roughly 25 years.

The redevelopment will go before the County Board on Saturday, and the staff report is recommending that the Board approve the rezoning request for the property, as well as adopt the ordinance to approve the development site plan for the project, which would be done in phases, as outlined below.
