The Market Common, Clarendon
Arlington, Virginia
The Market Common, Clarendon is a unique mixed-use development, located within the greater Washington DC area. Clarendon was once a major retail and residential hub, but anchor stores such as JC Penny, Sears and others relocated from the area and Clarendon lost its retail appeal. Similarly, its appeal as a residential area lagged the growth spurt being experienced just over the Key Bridge.

The 9.4 acre site was acquired and an extensive period of negotiation and collaboration with the community and the government of Arlington County ensued. The resulting project has won national and international acclaim. It was named by the International Council of Shopping Centers the winner of the prestigious International Award of Excellence and received an Honor Award from the Urban Land Institute.

Comprised of 240,000 sf of quality grocery and retail shopping, 300 residential rental apartments, 87 for sale townhomes and 120,000 sf of office space. The center has spurred a lively rebirth of the entire area. It is suggested that as much as $1.4 billion of new development has taken place since the Market Common was completed. Most importantly, the project immediately won the support and hearts of the community given that the community and local government had played such an active role in its conception and planning.

The completed project is also a testament to the retail relationships that the Developer/Architect Team has fostered. The Market Common is anchored by such stellar retailers as Whole Foods, Apple Computer, Crate and Barrel, Orvis, Barnes and Noble, The Container Store and Cheesecake Factory. Having worked through and with the community, The Market Common showcases our commitment to public space, parks, elegant and abundant landscape, family amenities and pedestrian friendliness.
