ABOUT:          The development, located just a half block from the Clarendon Metro station, will consist of eight stories of apartment homes atop two stories housing the site’s existing occupants, the Church at Clarendon and the County’s largest child daycare center.  The development will also preserve the church’s steeple – a landmark in Clarendon – and create 120 underground parking spaces.

The Class A apartment community will consist of 46 market-rate apartment homes and 70 affordable apartment homes, of which 12 will be supportive housing for very low income households.  The residences will be a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans.
