What used to be Jay’s Saloon — and a few small, surrounding businesses — is now a big hole in the ground.
The hole along 10th Street N. will soon enough be filled by a 143-unit luxury apartment complex dubbed 10th Street Flats. Ballston-based developer Clark Realty Capital received approval for the mixed-use development, which will include live-work units and ground floor retail, in 2014.
“10th Street Flats is positioned to offer its residents the best of what both Arlington and nearby Washington, D.C. have to offer,” the company said in a press release. “Sparing little in terms of luxury amenities and unique conveniences for its residents, the community will feature a rooftop lounge, outdoor kitchen and communal table, ground-floor bike workshop, fitness center and yoga room, teleworking space, eight innovative live/work units, and 3,700 SF of retail space.”
“Each apartment will feature stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, wood-surface flooring, and designer lighting and plumbing fixtures,” the press release continued. “Additionally, each unit will come equipped with Nest thermostats that provide energy-saving, Wi-Fi enabled temperature control capabilities.”
Clark broke ground on the project in January and expects construction to end and residents to move in by next summer.
