Big residential plans are in the works for the Americana hotel site in Arlington. 

JBG Smith has filed a conceptual site plan application with Arlington County for 1400 Richmond Highway (map), proposing a by-right 19-story building with 650 residential units above retail. There will also be 325 parking spaces across two below-grade parking levels. bKL Architecture is the designer.

JBG Smith acquired the hotel in late 2020, not long after it closed its doors. 

UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the project for more details. Additional massing is below.
