This summer, UrbanTurf detailed what is in the works for the redevelopment of the Key Bridge Marriott site in Rosslyn. Now, new renderings provide a better sense of how the proposed development will look.
Last week, the Arlington County Site Plan Review Committee (SPRC) began reviewing the site plan application for the 5.5-acre site at 1401 Lee Highway (map). The project, from Woodridge KB, LLC and Duball Development Services, would partially demolish and renovate the 60 year-old hotel to create a new 446-key hotel between 16-story plus-penthouse residential buildings with a total of 451 units.
The west residential building, largely comprised of terra cotta and featuring sawtooth balconies, will deliver 300 rental apartments. The east residential tower, largely comprised of concrete and limestone, will deliver 151 condominiums across two curvilinear buildings on a two-story podium at the site of the existing parking lot.
North Nash Street will be extended into the site, connecting with a car-free esplanade on the north side. There will also be a new street between and parallel to North Nash Street and Fort Myer Drive, and the existing hotel entrance will be replaced with a new port cochere off Lee Highway. The development would include 634 parking spaces split almost evenly between the three buildings, and there will be a ground-floor restaurant and a café in the hotel.
Each building will have public open space which will connect with the Custis and Mount Vernon Trails, while removing the pedestrian bridge spanning the highway from Gateway Park. It is unclear whether the development will include affordable units or a contribution to the Affordable Housing Investment Fund.
SPRC will resume considering the project next month. Maurice Walters Architects is the master architect and the west residential building architect, while Handel Architects is the east residential building architect and Cooper Carry is the hotel architect.
