The last neighborhood in Arlington before D.C. is Rosslyn, the new “Manhattan on the Potomac.” There have been quite a few developments in the Rosslyn area of late, as they attempt to redevelop the area. Some construction notes:
Central Place (Developed by JBG Properties)
Located at 1201 Wilson St, Arlington, VA 22209
31 floors of office and retail space with a top floor observation deck
30 story residential tower (350 units, probably apartments)
LEED Gold Certified
Delivery is expected for 2012
Rosslyn Commons (Developed by JBG Properties)
Located at Clarendon Blvd between N. Ode and N. Oak
2 residential towers, one 13 stories and one 12 (total of 454 apartments, of which 54 will be classified as ‘affordable housing’)
Construction began in early 2010
There are several other projects that are under review or just approved, but construction hasn’t yet started. We’ll keep you updated when there’s a ground breaking!

I wonder what qualifies as “affordable housing” as Rosslyn Commons?
That sounds like a good blog post idea 🙂
Affordable housing in Arlington is subsidized rent…blog post to follow! Thanks for the idea, Jeff!
Rosslyn Commons, “due to start construction in early 2010”?
It’s almost June, and no signs of activity. Has this project stalled? What is expected completion date?
After the initial site demolition (excellently and expertly done, by the
way), we’ve seen no activity.
They have the land fenced off. I can only go on the reports i’ve seen, but I suspect you’ll see some groundbreaking by the end of the year. Most of these construction companies are figuring out financing since guidelines have been so tight!
