Finalized Plans for the Vision for Wilson Boulevard
At our prior Membership Meetings in March and May 2002, Tara Lake, Capital Projects Planner for Arlington Public Works, discussed options for improving the design of Wilson Boulevard from N. Lincoln Street to N. Randoph Street. Among the options considered were a variety of ideas, such as additional on-street parking, medians, landscaping, nubs, improved sidewalks, bike lanes, turn lanes, and additional crosswalks and signals. At our May meeting, many suggestions and ideas were provided by BVSCA members to help improve the design. Tara Lake will make a presentation on the finalized plans for the new vision for Wilson Boulevard.
Proposed Development for 950 North Glebe Road
The site plan applicant, JBG/950 North Glebe Road Limited Partnership, proposes to demolish the existing building on the site at 950 North Glebe Road and to construct two new buildings under the existing zoning. These buildings would have frontage on the two streets and would be separated from a driveway accessed from North Glebe Road. One building would be a 14-story apartment building fronting on North Glebe Road with a height of 167 feet to the main roof and would have 184 residential units. This building would be located near the Staples store. The second building would be a one-story 19,150 square foot, retail building with a heigh of 25 feet to the main roof, at the corner of Fairfax Drive and North Glebe Road, across from the Marymount University blue building. The two buildings would have separate below-ground garages.
The subject site is zoned "C-O-2.5" and is designated "Medium" Office-Apartment-Hotel on the GLUP. The site is controlled by the existing Site Plan #133, and is being developed with a small office building of 64,000 square foot surrounded by surface parking. The legal representative for the site plan applicant, Tim Sampson, will make a presentation on the proposed development project.
