Demolition Nears For New Wilson Boulevard Office Project

Demolition work is expected to begin in early-to-mid December for a new office building on the 1700 block of Wilson Boulevard.

Crews will tear down three small buildings that most recently housed Arlington Motorcar Service, Medical Service Corporation International and the Fashion Dreams tailor. The work will make way for a five-story office building that will include 108,000 square feet of medical office space, 28,000 square feet of ground-level retail and 230 underground parking spaces.

Construction is expected to begin in February or March, once demolition is complete.

The demolition and construction work will require pedestrian traffic to be rerouted around the sidewalk closest to the development, but will not affect vehicular traffic, according to development manager Carolyn Desmond.

The project is being funded by the commercial development division of construction firm Skanska USA. So far, the company has not lined up any tenants, Desmond said.

The building is expected to be ready for occupancy by mid-2012.
