Orr Partners is working to redevelop the YMCA campus at 3400 13th Street N (map), delivering a new 88,815 square foot recreational facility and a 374-unit residential building. The YMCA will have a two-story natatorium with a below-grade pool and racketball and tennis courts. Republic Properties is a development partner; Perkins Eastman is the architect.
Aria Development Group acquired the commercial building at 4420 Fairfax Drive (map) earlier this year. Previous plans for this address consisted of a 367-unit project above 5,200 square feet of retail. The WDG Architecture-designed building would also have 156 parking spaces below-grade. The site has a WMATA easement and requires construction of another entrance for the Ballston Metro station at N. Fairfax Drive and N. Vermont Street — a source of much of the delays on the site.
Insight Property Group intends to replace the Macy's/office building at 685 N. Glebe Road (map) with a 16-story, two-phase development, delivering 555 apartments above a grocery store. The first phase would deliver 345 units above the 41,500 square-foot grocery store; the second phase would front Glebe Road, delivering 210 units and creating a shared outdoor terrace on the third floor. The project would include 241 residential and 148 retail parking spaces on two below-grade levels, along with 222 residential bicycle spaces.
The project would also require a transfer of development rights and density from the affordable Tyrol Hill/Haven Apartments off Columbia Pike, also owned by the developer. SK+I Architecture is the designer.
Jefferson Apartment Group and STARS REI are under construction on a 98-unit development at the former Portico Church Arlington at North Vermont and 11th Streets (map). The building will have a roof deck along with 120 below-grade parking space and 40 bicycle spaces. The development is looking to deliver in the coming months.
Work continues to redevelop the Harris Teeter and the former site of a Mercedes Benz dealership at 600 North Glebe Road (map). The entire project will be completed in three phases, starting with 310 apartments above a new Harris Teeter to replace the former American Service Center building. The second phase will raze the old Harris Teeter and construct another building with 195 apartments and a public park. The third phase will deliver 227 apartments with ground-floor retail and 687 below-grade parking spaces. The project will also include 294 long-term bicycle spaces; Southeastern Real Estate Group is the developer and DCS Design is the architect.
4600 and 4610 Fairfax Drive
At the end of 2021, Hoffman & Associates and partner Snell Properties filed an application with Arlington County to replace the office and hotel buildings at 4600 and 4610 Fairfax Drive (map) with a large two-building multi-family development. The hord|coplan|macht-designed project will consist of a seven-story, 432-unit building as well as three, five-story triplex style buildings with 12-15 units each, a parking garage and driveway.
The new project will take the place of the Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston hotel at 4610 Fairfax Drive, as well as the Arlington Center office building at 4600 Fairfax Drive. The developers hope to break ground in 2024.
