Torti Gallas and Partners, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of The Bartlett in Arlington, Virginia. This Torti Gallas designed project was developed by Vornado and includes 699 residential units, a Whole Foods grocery and smaller scale ground floor retail.
The Bartlett has transformed an industrial area of warehouse buildings into a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood surrounding a grand central park. Occupying a full city block, The Bartlett is a signature piece of the larger Metropolitan Park development.
The residential portion of the building provides high-end apartment living with a wide variety of amenities. In addition to multiple levels of green roof areas and terraces, the building features a large tranquil courtyard of over 12,000 sf. Active amenity spaces include a large fitness center and 2 levels of large rooftop terraces, each with party rooms adjacent to the terrace space. The upper roof terrace, located on the top of the 22-story tower, takes full advantage of the fantastic views of the Potomac River and the monumental core of Washington, DC. The tower also includes multiple swimming lanes and lounge areas in and out of the water.
This transit-oriented development is adjacent to metro, light-rail and bus lines, helping to support a sustainable culture and lifestyle for the building's residents. Additionally, The Bartlett was designed to reach a minimum certification level of LEED Silver. The building features over 15,000 sf of green roof area and uses high efficiency central building systems to provide heating and cooling of the occupied spaces as well as heat recovery and central water boilers. The residential units and public spaces feature EnergyStar lighting and appliances throughout.
The Bartlett is an exciting step forward in the continued sustainable urbanization of one of the most transit convenient neighborhoods in Arlington County.
