Located in the city of Arlington and overlooking the grounds of the Arlington National Cemetery to the south, these two boutique residential buildings bring a modern edge to residents in an often overlooked residential area. The buildings contain 41 units in a smaller, west building and 90 units in the east building that are separated by a future pocket park. The buildings are designed to blend the mix of building scales of single family homes to the west and seven to eight story apartment towers to the east. The sophisticated color palate and subtle detailing of the buildings bring a unique vision to the site.

“I have said many times that you should always hire architectural firms that have the kind of expertise and experience needed for the development you are attempting to build.  The Preston Partnership is one of those firms that I have had the distinct pleasure of working with on many, many developments.  Experienced, professional, willing and capable to take on any challenge.”
