Multifamily owner and developer JBG SMITH has broken ground on two multifamily towers at 2000 and 2001 South Bell St. in Arlington, Va.

Located in the heart of National Landing, the two projects will feature 775 apartments and almost 27,000 square feet of retail. The towers will be set apart visually by different heights, colors, materials, designs and finishes.

The KPF-designed 2000 South Bell St. will be a 25-story modern glass tower featuring 355 multifamily units above 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Situated next door, 2001 South Bell St. is a STUDIOS-designed 420-unit, 19-story tower with 10,000 square feet of street level retail and green-glazed brick façade. Architect of record for both towers is SK+1.

In lockstep

“We are leading National Landing’s transformation into a premier urban community animated by diverse residences, high-end offices, exciting retail and welcoming parks and open spaces,” Byran Moll, executive vice president of development of JBG SMITH, told Multi-Housing News. “One of our main priorities is to produce quality new housing in lockstep with all of the jobs that are being generated throughout National Landing by Amazon, Virginia Tech and other tech-focused companies.”

“We also recognize the need to expand the neighborhood’s retail and entertainment options as the daytime and evening populations grow. These towers will help to answer this demand by activating an underutilized site with new street-level retail to create a vibrant, 18-hour neighborhood,” he added. “The options at our South Bell development will be an important complement to the retail we’ve created along Crystal Drive, and the plans we have for our Dining in the Park and Water Park culinary experiences.”

Both buildings will feature rooftop amenity spaces. Plans also include in-garage bike parking and electric vehicle charging stations. Balfour Beatty will serve as general contractor. Both buildings target LEED Gold Certification.
