Construction wraps up on second apartment tower in Pentagon Centre redevelopment

Pentagon City’s metamorphosis is continuing.

The second apartment tower in the multi-phase Pentagon Centre shopping center redevelopment is now complete.

The Milton, at 1446 S. Grant Street, is an 11-story, 253-unit building developed by Kimco Realty. So far, it is already 25% leased and move-ins are expected to start this month, a spokeswoman told ARLnow.

Various businesses are expected to move into the roughly 16,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. In a statement, Kimco Realty says this retail, “carefully curated to complement the neighborhood,” will be announced later this year.

Tenants will have use of a community garden and potting station, two outdoor courtyards with a co-working area, a pet spa with wash stations, a gym and clubroom, per the statement. The building is designed to meet LEED Silver standards for sustainability and was named for Kimco Realty co-founder Milton Cooper.

The first residential tower in the long-term redevelopment of the retail center opened four years ago. The 26-story, 440-unit building, dubbed The Witmer, is located on the other wide of the property, above the second Pentagon City Metro entrance at 710 12th Street S.

Future plans for the area — which Kimco recently updated — propose two office buildings, three more residential towers, additional retail and a hotel, as well as a 30% increase in green space, criss-crossed by planted paths dubbed “green ribbons” in the recently-updated Pentagon City Sector Plan.

In a statement, Kimco Realty Southern Region President Tom Simmons said this new building “offers something new for Pentagon City.”

“The Milton provides residents with direct access to several key sites in Arlington, which has become a huge hub for recent development,” he said, highlighting the essentially complete Amazon HQ2 office complex nearby and the Virginia Tech Innovation campus in Potomac Yard.

The full press release is below.

Today, Kimco Realty announced project details and move-ins for The Milton, the second residential tower in the multi-phase Pentagon Centre development, named after Kimco Realty co-founder Milton Cooper. The Milton offers the opportunity to live conveniently in the Pentagon City neighborhood with direct access to a wide variety of shopping and dining options, in an energetic, modern building. Located at 1446 South Grant Street, the 11-story, over 300,000 square-foot building features 253 total residences with amenities that are unparalleled in the market, including an extraordinary, expansive rooftop oasis.

The Milton is part of the Pentagon Centre redevelopment of an existing 330,000-square-foot retail center located directly above the Pentagon City Metro Station. The first residential tower, The Witmer, which is 26 stories tall with 440 units and 7,000 square feet of ground floor retail, opened in 2019. Future plans for the area following the completion of The Milton include additional retail, office space, and a hotel – bringing the total project size to nearly two million square feet at full build-out.

Pentagon City offers residents the best of a mixed-use neighborhood with all the convenience of Arlington, VA, within Virginia’s largest walkable urban downtown, National Landing. The area features tree-lined streets, global cuisine, local businesses, parks, a collection of shopping options and an interconnected community. The Milton is conveniently located steps from the Pentagon City Metro Station and seconds from major transportation routes, less than two miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

“The Milton offers something new for Pentagon City. Residents will get to experience all the best in luxury design and amenities in the area at their fingertips, including prestigious shopping and a wide selection of dining venues,” Tom Simmons, President of Kimco Realty’s Southern Region. “The Milton provides residents with direct access to several key sites in Arlington, which has become a huge hub for recent development, including key sites like the newly delivered Amazon HQ2 offices in National Landing and the Arlington Virginia Tech satellite campus nearby.”

With architecture by WDG Architecture and interior design by Hartman Design Group, The Milton features a vibrant design with refined finishes, creating a warm, welcoming space. Residents will enjoy a variety of expertly crafted residences configured as studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Each residence features thoughtful touches including quartz countertops, glass tile backsplashes and ceiling fans in every bedroom. Select residences also include customizable closets and outdoor balconies.

The Milton offers an extensive amenity package with an array of the most sought-after amenities in the area, including:

  • Expansive indoor/outdoor rooftop with unparalleled options for outdoor entertaining, including an infinity pool, outdoor kitchen and grills, cabanas, fireplaces and lounge areas, with beautiful views of the Washington Monument and surrounding greenery in Virginia Highlands Park and throughout Arlington
  • Community garden and potting station
  • Two outdoor courtyards, including a central “jewel box” area for working outside, etc.
  • Clubroom with gaming area and indoor bar
  • Modern fitness studio and yoga room with locker facilities and on-site maintenance
  • Pet spa with wash stations

The Milton will include approximately 16,000 square feet of carefully curated ground-floor retail, to complement the neighborhood, which will be announced later this year.

The Milton is designed to meet LEED Silver certification standards for sustainability. Leasing has already begun, with move-ins projected to start in June 2023.

Every dollar makes a big difference. Research to discover new drug treatments would NOT be possible without philanthropic funding. Unbelievably, childhood cancer research receives just 4% of the annual budget from the National Cancer Institute, underscoring the importance of charitable giving.
