Carr Properties breaks ground on new office building in Arlington
Carr Properties and project team members MTFA Architecture and Clark Construction have broken ground on a 175,000-square-foot, eight-story, office building in the Clarendon-Court House neighborhood in Arlington. OPower’s new corporate headquarters will anchor the project at 2311 Wilson Boulevard.
Designed by MTFA Architecture, the building will add a modern presence across from the Courthouse Metro with a glass tower and a two-story glass entry lobby. “For many years, this underdeveloped site incubated numerous businesses like MTFA Architecture and will now fulfill a higher purpose,” Michael Foster, an investor and managing principal of MTFA Architecture, said in a statement.
Amenities will include a fully wired conference facility, childcare facility with outdoor play area, executive health club, 5,900-square-foot rooftop terrace with panoramic views and bocce court, a bike center and on-site retail options.
Located a block away from the Metro’s Orange and Silver Lines, 2311 Wilson Boulevard offers access to Route 50, I-66, and Route 29/Lee Highway. It’s close to a mix of restaurants, retail, hotels, entertainment and civic amenities. Construction is scheduled for completion at the end of 2017.
Carr Properties is a privately held real estate investment trust that currently owns a portfolio of 16 commercial office properties totaling about 4 million square feet in the Washington, D.C., area.
