The Wellington is about to get even bigger. A new three-building apartment development was approved for the site of The Wellington's parking lot on Columbia Pike. ARLnow reported that in order for the Arlington County Board to approve the project, the property owner had to agree to convert 105 of development's existing apartments into affordable housing.
The project will feature 402 market-rate, multi-family residential units across three, six-story residential buildings. There will also be new street connections constructed on South Smythe Street and 12th Street South.
In a newly constructed, nine-level garage, there will be 402 reserved spaces, 51 visitor spaces, and 161 bicycle spaces. The new development is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
