April/May 1997 - Volume 20, No. 6


The site plan applicant is proposing a significant redesign of a portion of the approved Ballston Common Site Plan, to accommodate three floors of restaurants and cinemas, and eleven stories of office as an extension project which will connect to the existing mall.

The project would be located at 701 N. Glebe Road, a vacant site between Hecht's department store and the Ballston Common Mall's parking deck.

The Association has invited representatives of the site plan applicant to make a presentation on the proposal at our Wednesday, April 30, 1997, Membership Meeting, at the Arlington Hotel, 2nd Floor Conference Rooms, above the Ballston Metro Station. If you have any questions or comments about this proposal, we invite you to bring them to our Membership Meeting. This item is scheduled for presentation from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. This major site plan amendment will be heard by the Planning Commission on June 30, 1997, and by the County Board on July 19, 1997. The Association encourages interested members to attend both of these meetings and express your views.
