Hunter’s Park is a mixed-use development in the Cherrydale neighborhood of Arlington, VA that provides affordable apartments for active seniors above street-level, community-serving retail. Located along Lee Highway, an established but aging urban retail corridor, this project is the first Site Plan approved within the Cherrydale Revitalization District since its adoption by Arlington County in 1994. After working closely with the community and Arlington County to overcome site restraints, Cunningham | Quill Architects developed a master plan to create an effective and positive transition from the commercial strip along Lee Highway to the single-family residential neighborhood directly to the south.
The building’s residential program evokes the atmosphere of a single-family home, with comfortable common spaces for eating, cooking, study and recreation on the ground floor for residents. All 74 one-bedroom apartments are self-contained with full kitchen and bath facilities.
