Bush Construction to Build New Condos in Arlington!
It has been far too long since we have seen a new condominium project here in Arlington. Lately, most of the construction projects have been apartments or commercial space, but now there is finally going to be a new condo building built in Arlington! It will be located at 2000 Clarendon Blvd, right next to the Odyssey Condominium near the Courthouse metro. The project has been approved for 14 floors and 90 total units with 4 affordable units and street level retail. The county approved rezoning of the site on June 18th, 2016 to allow for the new building.
Bush Construction Company will be heading up the project along with WDG Architecture that will replace an existing office building in a prime spot located right next to the Odyssey Condominium. The project will affect many of the units in the Odyssey facing North/Northeast and unfortunately may block some of their Georgetown views.
The project will consist of over 106,000 square feet of residential space with 86 residential condominium units, 4 affordable housing units, 1,900 square feet of ground floor retail and 112 underground parking spaces.
The building will have an In Building First Responder Communication System. In 2014, Arlington County adopted a policy to encourage developers of new commercial construction to install a wireless first responder network to enhance the communication of police, fire and other emergency responders within the built environment. This policy was to become part of the site plan conditions with each development project.
The project is committed to be LEED Silver and Energy Star Certification. LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As an added bonus, they save money. See more on LEED Certification here.
