Project Website:

Located on the Metro just four miles from Washington, D.C., Ballston Quarter is billed as being all about authentic, local and real. With Ballston Quarter, owner Forest City Enterprises is creating an urban village, a place for Arlington to come together to “experience life as unexpected, singular and true as it can be,” according to Forest City. Ballston Quarter will feature a mix of uses around living, working, shopping and entertainment options, as the project features destinations in which to grab lunch, stop in for a drink, find something special to wear or give, have fun with friends, or simply kick back with a coffee and take in the scene.

The mixed-use project will feature a 1 million-sq.-ft. mix of stores, restaurants, entertainment venues, residential apartment homes and office space. Over 1,000 hotel rooms, 8.3 million sq. ft. of office space, and 8,300-plus residential units are within walking distance of the project and within access of the Orange and Silver Lines Metro station.
