Note from the Project Team
Special “Thanks” to Arlington County Planning staff members who have done an excellent job reviewing and analyzing the existing planning documents and guiding principles related to the Courthouse West site. Using this information, in conjunction with more recent feedback and input from the community and County’s Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC), County Staff has provided 3 exciting conceptual massing scenarios for the project which can be found in their County Engagement Session Presentation. Staff’s concepts range in height from 6 stories to 17 stories and generally taper higher from West to East and South to North. We understand that the most desirable outcome may be a massing that is taller, shorter, or in between what has been shown and we hope you will communicate your thoughts on this platform and via the County Online Feedback Form.
As background, The Courthouse West Project team’s official GLUP Study Application, first submitted in May 2019, features a conceptual massing with a maximum height of 14 stories that we believe also achieves a similar balanced tapering across the site. We’ve posted the original GLUP Study Application and some additional Supplemental Information in the "Document Library" found in the right margin, with the goal of providing contextual views which consider the potential future build out of the neighboring blocks alongside our original massing.
About the Courthouse West GLUP Study
The Courthouse West Special General Land Use Plan (GLUP) Study is an Arlington County-Led process that seeks to evaluate which GLUP designation or designations are most appropriate for this study area. This process may result in a change to the GLUP which enables the redevelopment of the largely surface parking lots into a mixed-use project. Specific details of any future project including the building layout, public benefits, infrastructure improvements, and many other site specific features will be further defined in the site plan review process following the completion of the GLUP Study.
The GLUP Study process will be conducted through the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) of the Planning Commission. Throughout the process there will be multiple opportunities for community input. Learn more at the County’s study website.
