Arlington Seeking Online Feedback, Offering Virtual Walking Tour of Rosslyn Redevelopment

A major redevelopment project is coming to Rosslyn and Arlington County is soliciting online feedback about it.

With the pandemic nixing in-person meetings, the county is piloting a virtual walking tour of the project, which will redevelop the former Art Institute building at 1820 N. Fort Myer Drive (also known as the Ames Center) into two new residential towers.

The current plan is for the new development — across Fort Myer Drive from the Rosslyn Metro station — to include 740 residential units, 574 parkings space, and about 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. It will also remove two pedestrian bridges, while adding a central plaza and pedestrian walkway that would act as an extension of the 18th Street corridor.

The existing Sunoco gas station and Arlington Temple United Methodist Church would remain and will be “rebuilt in place.” The towers will be 30 and 31 stories apiece.

The county is collecting online feedback on the project, from Arlington-based developer Snell Properties, through tomorrow (Thursday). It is expected to be considered for County Board approval this fall.
