Final Report

This report is a culmination of a yearlong study performed on the Clarendon Center - South Block located in Arlington, VA. Clarendon Center is a two block infill development at the Clarendon Metro stop in Arlington County, Virginia, bounded by North Highland and Garfield Streets on the east and west, and Clarendon and Wilson Boulevards on the north and south. The south block massing wraps the block on three sides, with the office on the west and the residential portion on the north and east. The courtyard is open to the south. The first floor has below grade parking and retail space, while floors two through twelve contain residential units and amenities. Landscape amenities include a crescent plaza on the northeast corner, paving detail at the office entry, a second floor courtyard and streetscape elements throughout. The project has a LEED rating as required by Arlington County. Two existing buildings on these blocks are being preserved as historic: the Underwood Building and the Old Dominion Building.
