10th and Irving
Client: Orr Partners
Orr Partners and Antunovich Associates are collaborating on an exciting mixed-use project at 10th & Irving, in the Clarendon area of Arlington, Virginia. The site is a conglomeration of aged buildings that include office, vehicle repair, including an historic service station, and food & beverage facilities. Through a development agreement between 2 landowner groups, the project boundary is located at the SE corner of the triangular site. This location includes the historic Joyce Motors which is listed as an Essential building per the Historic Resource Inventory. Restoring and preserving the legacy of this building, which is one of only four remaining 1940s-era Texaco gas stations, is a prime example of the Streamline Moderne architectural style popular in the 1940s and 1950s.
The design carefully relocates and integrates two historic facades into a new mixed-use retail/residential building. The 10th & Irving project consists of approximately 3,500 square feet of retail on the ground level and approximately 185,000 square feet of residential space, situated on 11 levels, making up 240 apartment units. 145 parking spaces are located on two and a half below-grade levels. The building is skinned in clean off-white bricks with a punched window system, creating a boutique residential tower with exterior terraces and operable windows. A west facing courtyard creates an efficient residential layout, enhances light and air, and includes a bio-retention area. Upper level amenities include a lounge, outdoor pool, and grilling areas.
