New Development to Replace Jay’s Saloon Near Clarendon

A local developer is planning a new residential development on the site of what is now Jay’s Saloon (3114 10th Street N.) and several other small businesses near Clarendon.

Ballston-based developer Clark Realty Capital has filed paperwork with Arlington County proposing a 134-unit residential building with ground floor retail space. The project will be built on the site of 3100, 3110, 3114, 3120, 3124 and 3130 10th Street N., according to a letter sent to nearby residents. Businesses on that strip of low-rise buildings include Jay’s Saloon, a car dealership, a salon and an insurance agency.

An attorney for Clark Realty said the developer hopes to receive Arlington County Board approval at some point this winter, following a public process of getting feedback from neighbors. Construction will likely begin a year or more after Board approval, we’re told, but the timeline is still uncertain.

Jay’s Saloon, a dive bar noted for its loyal clientele, has been operating under the possibility of imminent closure due to redevelopment for nearly two years.
