Forest City, Arlington County Partner to Renovate Ballston Common Mall in Metro D.C.

ARLINGTON, VA. — Forest City Realty Trust Inc. and Arlington County have formed a public-private partnership to transform Ballston Common Mall into a mixed-use retail destination known as Ballston Quarter. The Arlington County board unanimously approved the development agreement at a recent meeting. Located four miles outside of Washington, D.C., Ballston Quarter will feature open-air retail and restaurant space, 406-unit residential tower, pedestrian bridge spanning Wilson Boulevard, public plaza, parking garage upgrades and enhanced streetscapes. The public-private partnership plans to open Ballston Quarter and the pedestrian bridge in September 2018, with pre-leasing for the residential tower to begin in late 2018. In November 2015, Arlington County approved a letter of intent with Forest City to fund up to $55.5 million in public infrastructure costs related to the project.
