Groundbreaking at The Shell

Excavation for The Shell has begun! Designed for AHC, this mixed-use brownfield redevelopment is located in the Columbia Pike Special Revitalization District in Arlington, Virginia and received the first Administrative Approval under the Form Based Code process. The Shell represents a creative land assemblage by AHC, Inc. Harvey Hall, an adjoining existing affordable apartment community with unused density, and an adjacent 1950’s era corner gas station, were combined to create a very prominent corner parcel. The Shell contributes 83 affordable apartments above ground floor retail to the revitalization of Columbia Pike. Construction is scheduled to be completed in August 2014.
