Yesterday, the Arlington County Planning Commission's Site Plan Review Committee held a hearing on the proposed redevelopment of the Holiday Inn in Arlington. Here's a look at how the project has changed since UrbanTurf reported on it this spring.

The proposed development from Dittmar affiliate Rosslyn Syndicate would replace the Holiday Inn at 1900 N. Fort Myer Drive (map) with a building which combines residential, hotel and conference center uses along with retail and restaurant space. A 38-story tower fronting N. Fort Myer would contain a four-star hotel with 344 rooms (compared to the previously-proposed 327), and a 25-story residential tower fronting Nash Street would deliver roughly 500 studio-to-three-bedroom units (compared to the previously-proposed 490).

A ten-story building base would include a 47,450 square-foot conference center with an 8,000 square-foot ballroom, and would conceal four levels of above-grade parking. The total number of parking spaces, which will also be on three below-grade levels, has been reduced from 937 to 812, with 349 of the spaces set aside for residents via a separate garage. The development will also include nearly 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a pedestrian walkway from N. Fort Myer to Nash Street.

Rather than having a rooftop pool atop the hotel, the hotel will have an indoor pool and the residential building will have a rooftop pool. If approvals are completed this year, the residential building could deliver in late spring 2024 with the hotel following in the summer or fall of the same year.

The development joins another major hotel redevelopment proposal a couple of blocks away at the Key Bridge Marriott. MTFA Design + Preservation is the project architect. Additional renderings are below.
