County Board OKs Plan for 22-Story Building in Pentagon City

The Arlington County Board on Saturday unanimously gave its blessing to a developer’s plan to build a new 22-story apartment building in Pentagon City.

Developer Vornado is set to break ground on a new building within the Metropolitan Park development. As planned, the new building at 1400 S. Eads St. will include 577 residential units, 9,665 square feet of retail.

The development will also include a number of community benefits. As planned, the new building will bring with it either a commissioned piece of on-site public art or a $75,000 public art contribution; 23 units of affordable housing or a cash contribution to the county’s affordable housing fund; and three open space areas including the completion of a public courtyard called Metropolitan Park Central Park.

The new building represents the sixth and final phase of the Metropolitan Park development.

“We have seen previous phases of Metropolitan Park transform this area of Pentagon City from warehouses and parking lots to a vibrant, walkable place,” County Board Chair Libby Garvey said in a statement. “We look forward to its completion with the construction of Phase 6 and are particularly excited to see the completion of its Central Park for all to enjoy.”

Trendy businesses such as Whole FoodsStarbucks and CorePower Yoga have already opened locations in nearby Metropolitan Park buildings. Likewise, Sweetgreen, Orangetheory Fitness and Commonwealth Joe all plan to open millennial-friendly outposts there.
