Lyon Place at Clarendon Metro

Arlington, VA

"This project showcases the mixed-use, smart growth and historic preservation that neighbors want in Clarendon."

Lyon Place at Clarendon Center is a vibrant, two block mixed-use infill development that has transformed the area surrounding the Clarendon Metro Station in Arlington, Virginia. The LEED NC Certified south block building contains residential, office, retail and parking in a 12-story building. The first floor retail is anchored by a Trader Joe’s supermarket. The north block is LEED C&S Silver certified and contains office, retail and parking in a 6-story building. Landscape amenities include a crescent plaza on the northeast corner, paving detail at the office entry, a second floor courtyard and streetscape elements throughout. Two existing buildings on these blocks have been preserved as historic: the Underwood Building and the Old Dominion Building.
