More details are emerging about a massive residential project planned across the street from the Rosslyn Metro station.
In December, Snell Properties submitted a final site plan to redevelop 1820 North Fort Myer Drive (map), replacing the office building on the site with two residential towers totalling 788 units. Arlington Temple United Methodist Church and the gas station below it at 1830 North Fort Myer Drive will remain on the site, albeit with a façade facelift.
The 30-story north tower will be appended to the church, delivering 364 residential units, while the 31-story south tower will deliver 424 units. Both towers will have retail components in and attached to their lobbies. The application states that up to 225 units in the south tower will have interim "hotel" use for the first 2-5 years of the project.
There will also be a total of 650 parking spaces across 3.5 shared below-grade levels and five above-grade levels in the south tower, along with a total of 318 long-term bicycle spaces. A bi-level pedestrian plaza will bisect the buildings, roughly aligning with 18th Street N.
An additional 2,835 square feet in the south tower will create an access point to the Hyatt Centric Arlington Hotel behind the building. Shalom Baranes is the design architect, while Gustafson Guthrie Nichol is the landscape architect.
The county's Site Plan Review Committee will consider the project later this month. Additional renderings are below.
