Abstract
This development plan for the Virginia Square Metro is located near Washington DC in Arlington County, Virginia. The proposal includes “open plan” mid-rise residential, high-rise mixed-use, an identifiable transit station and linked green space with small scale agricultural potential. Mid-rise dwelling units provide the density to support local business along shop-lined streets. Pedestrian ways and bike trails offer additional transportation routes while mass transit cuts down on automobile usage. The scheme combines sustainable design, innovative construction techniques and transit-oriented development principles to provide the infrastructure and act as a catalyst for healthy future growth along the Rosslyn-Ballston development corridor.
