Affordable Housing Goes High-End at Union on Queen in Arlington

Bozzuto and Wesley Housing recently opened a community of mixed-income multifamily housing as part of Arlington County’s Affordable Housing Master Plan. The community, located at 1515 N. Queen St., has a combination of 80 affordable housing units and 115 market-rate apartments. Forty-one percent of the property is open space, and there’s a fire pit on the rooftop deck, an open demonstration kitchen and community seating, a 24-hour fitness center, club room, genius bar, sun deck, golfing green and more.

Former Carpool Spot Redeveloped into Apartments

The space that was formerly Arlington’s Carpool will soon be turned into a 22-story apartment complex with 330 units. Jefferson Apartment Group purchased the 0.61-acre site and will build the apartment tower that will also include 264 underground parking spaces, 8,260 square feet of ground-level retail, a rooftop pool and lounge, fitness center and concierge services.

Herndon Metro Station to Get More Housing Options

A 31-acre property that sits at the Dulles Toll Road and Monroe Street in Herndon will be developed into a 1.6 million-square-foot mixed-use development to include 678 residential units (multifamily and townhomes), 560,000 square feet of offices in two towers, 20,000 feet of retail and 6 acres of parks.

Block 20 Plans for Alexandria’s Eastern End

Paradigm Development Co. is planning on bringing more housing to Alexandria’s Eisenhower East section through development of a 3.5-acre parcel of land. The company put forth two options for the site: the first proposing a residential apartment building (two connected towers at 26 stories and 22 stories) and a nine-story hotel and the second proposing a residential apartment building (two connected towers at 22 stories and 18 stories) and a six-story office building. The Carlyle Design Review Board approved the plan in March.
