Wondering What’s Replacing Hollywood Video in Courthouse?

Now that the Hollywood Video in Courthouse has closed, you may be wondering what is going to replace it. At Saturday’s county board meeting, we got a preview.

An expansive, five-story residential complex with ground-floor retail is planned for the site. In addition to stores and restaurants on the sidewalk level, it will feature about 200 residential units, two open courtyards and an underground parking garage.

1900 Wilson Boulevard, as the project is known, is a being spearheaded by ZOM Mid-Atlantic, which bought the prime plot of land two years ago for nearly $22 million. Currently, the site is home to Hollywood Video, this small office building and a sizable surface parking lot.

The project will also involve the construction of a brand new road. The developer’s plan calls for a stretch of North Troy Street to be built between Wilson and Clarendon Boulevard, breaking up the “superblock” that now extends uninterrupted from Rhodeside Grill to Wendy’s.

The board spent more than 75 minutes discussing the project’s site plan on Saturday. Board members are expected to vote on the plan at their June 12th meeting.
