Below, UrbanTurf catches up with what's in the works in terms of residential development along Columbia Pike. If we missed a project, shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com. 

In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods UrbanTurf has covered thus far this year:


3401 Columbia Pike 

Marcus Partners has plans in the works for a new 250-unit residential development at the site of the Bank of America office building at 3401 Columbia Pike (map). The six-story building will have ground floor retail, a central courtyard and 287 parking spaces on 2.5 below grade levels. The project is designed by KGD Architecture. 


1001 and 1101 South Glebe

The owner of 1001 and 1101 South Glebe Road (map) filed plans last year with Arlington County for three new residential buildings and 15,000 square feet of retail at the southeast corner of Columbia Pike and South Glebe Road. The addresses are currently home to a 12-pump gas station, a service station retail building, a Midas Service Center, and a large surface parking lot.

The project, designed by MV+A Archtects, will consist of 366 apartments and will be constructed across two phases. The north phase is a multifamily building with approximately 342 apartments, 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 427-space parking garage. The south phase will include 24 stacked townhouse-style units. 

The new development is anticipated to be a certified LEED construction project, and a significant portion of the retail space will be located at the intersection of Columbia Pike and South Glebe Road.


2801 Columbia Pike

The Christopher Companies has plans for a new 88-unit residential development at 2801 Columbia Pike (map), currently home to a two-level commercial building. The new project, designed by Devereaux Architects and Planners, would rise 7 stories, have two levels of underground parking and 5,800 square feet of retail space. 

2400 Columbia Pike

YW Capital Development has plans in the works for a 120-unit development at 2400 Columbia Pike (map). The building will have two levels of below-grade parking, as well as 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and office space.The development is designed to incorporate the façades of two of the three commercial buildings that are currently on the site; existing tenants Rappahannock Coffee and Carpets ERA are expected to return to the completed project.

Pike West

Plans appear to still be in the works to redevelop the site of 14 residential buildings (totaling 90 units) from 834-877 S Greenbrier Street (map). The first phase of the Pike West development would deliver 401 units, 124 of which would be affordable to households earning up to 60% and 80% of area median income, across a pair of six-story buildings. 

The second building would wrap a six-level parking garage with 418 spaces, and would also front a new street that will bisect the first and second phases of the project. The unit mix will range from junior one-bedrooms to three-bedrooms, and there would also be 170 street-level bicycle spaces. Merion Group is the developer and KGD Architecture is the designer.
