A planned apartment and townhouse construction project on Columbia Pike at the intersection with S. Glebe Road was postponed for one month at Monday night’s Arlington Planning Commission meeting.
“The applicant is working through various issues and details of the phasing of the construction and parking garage design,” said planning commission coordinator Freida Wray.
The applicant, Penrose Property Company, LLC, requested in a letter last week that the commission postpone the project's public hearing to a later date, according to county documents.
The plan seeks to rezone a parcel of land from residential to the Columbia Pike Form-based Code in order to build new residential and retail space units on the property.
The rezoning is the first part of the project as construction on 247 multi-family housing units, 12 stacked flats, 44 townhouses and 15,079 square feet of retail await approval.
No design graphics were presented to the commission at the meeting and some planning commission members expressed interest in seeing them at the next meeting.
Planning division member Jennifer Smith told members of the commission that documents will be available online soon.
The project’s next planning commission meeting is scheduled for May 7. If approved the project goes to the county board’s meeting May 19.
