An 83-unit mixed-use affordable housing complex built on the site of a Shell gas station in Arlington

Friday, December 14th, 2012

"The $13 million, six-story building is designed by Cunningham + Quill Architects and will include ground floor retail space and two levels of below-grade parking. The building is designed around a central courtyard, and the retail space faces Columbia Pike. Plans call for the building to be built on two adjacent parcels - one at 870 South Greenbrier, largely a surface parking lot and undeveloped scrubland, and one at 5511 Columbia Pike, the former site of the Shell station. Though that parcel did require environmental remediation - mostly the excavation and removal of contaminated soil - Welsh says that the previous owner handled it before selling to AHC."
