The Arlington County Site Plan Review Committee considered the redevelopment plans for Rosslyn's Ames Center earlier this week, and with the review came new, striking images of the development.
Snell Properties proposes to replace the office building at 1820 North Fort Myer Drive (map) with 788 residential units across two buildings, a bi-level pedestrian plaza, and a redesigned Arlington Temple United Methodist Church and gas station beneath at the site.
Behind the church, the 30-story north tower will house 364 residential units above retail, while the 31-story south tower will deliver 424 units, 225 of which will have interim "hotel" use. The church will also operate as a conference center, and there is a possibility the gas station will be replaced with retail.
Shalom Baranes is the design architect, and Gustafson Guthrie Nichol is the landscape architect. Check out more renderings of the proposed development below.
