ARLINGTON, VA-The JBG Cos. has received approval to redevelop a garden apartment complex into two apartment towers and townhouses that will be LEED certified. The Arlington County Board approved the project with no changes, a spokesperson for the county tells

JBG first submitted the proposal last September. She did not have development costs or when the project was scheduled to break down. JBG did not return a call in time for publication. All together, Rosslyn Commons will include 454 apartments in two towers, 25 four-story townhouses and more than 12,000-sf of ground-floor retail.

The redevelopment of Rosslyn Commons will include a strong affordable component that will substitute for the affordable housing units that currently exist at the complex. There are currently 84 market-rate affordable units, most of them one bedroom. These will be demolished and replaced with 54 units that will provide the same number of bedrooms. They will remain affordable for 30 years.
