Despite continued economic weakness across the country, development and construction in Arlington continued at a relatively strong pace last year, a newly-released report reveals.

In 2010, developers began construction on more than 600,000 square feet of retail and office space, while construction wrapped up construction on another 600,000 square feet of space. Construction started on 477 multifamily (apartment and condo) units, while 1,438 units were completed.

A majority – 68 percent – of on-going commercial construction last year took place in Ballston. A similar majority of the multifamily construction – 67 percent – took place on Columbia Pike.

For more information, see the 2010 Development Trends report from Arlington County’s Department of Community Planning, Housing and Development.

    Ok, I have my first comment on the revised design. I liked it better when the link to make comments (and the number of comments so far) was at the end of the article and that it was in English and not just a small icon.

    It seems like a small pain in the butt to finish reading an article and then have to scroll back to the top to find that little bubble icon in order to proceed.

    Also if you specify different background and text colors in your browser a lot of stuff just goes away. An issue with many websites. I am not a web developer but I would assume that there is some kind of clickable image that gets nuked when you force a color change?

    Still one of my favorite blogs though.

  • Arlington County also has a google map of 2010 Development Activity.
