Yet Another Approved Office Development Turns Residential

Cityline Partners has submitted a proposal to substitute an office building that has been approved for a residential high-rise with ground-floor retail  “This proposal to develop Block C2 with a high-rise residential building with ground-floor retail/service uses and significant park space will progress Arbor Row into a more complete and vibrant neighborhood,” read the statement of justification. 

Encompassing 19.4 acres along Westpark Drive near Tysons Galleria, the plan for Arbor Row was originally approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors way back in 2012. It calls for eight blocks of development, including the completed Nouvelle apartments, as well as the Monarch Condominiums and The Mather, both of which are currently under construction. Block C2 was approved to for a 180-foot-tall office building with up to 275,650 sq. ft. of space, including some retail and service uses. A public park with an urban plaza and recreational amenities would join the concepts together.

This most recent proposal retains the public park but replaces the office building with a 23-story, a 270-foot-tall residential tower of about the same size. The high-rise would consist of up to 240 dwelling units and up to 8,500 square feet of ground-floor retail or service uses. The application asked to replace the tennis and basketball courts with a large putting green, two pickleball courts, and an “outdoor fitness circuit, while still providing a playground, a lawn area, pavilions, and public art. It also proposes covering a previously open-air parking garage. In addition to the public park, the revised development plan includes private terraces for residents and their guests.

'On the south side of the building, a pool deck and an amenity area featuring seating areas, outdoor grilling stations, and dining elements, and a multi-functional lawn will be provided. On the north side of the building, the lower level roof terrace may provide additional passive outdoor spaces, and/or provide outdoor space for use by a street level retailer/restaurateur.'

Though the application was filed by Cityline Partners, developer Renaissance Centro is under contract to buy the 2.9-acre parcel at 7925 Westpark Drive, according to the Washington Business Journal. The Bethesda-based firm is also building the neighboring Monarch development.
