QUEENS COURT

Queens Court is a 249 unit 100% dedicated affordable housing project located in the heart of Rosslyn. This project is 12 stories and includes a two story below-grade garage. Queens Court will have a condominium ownership utilizing 4% and 9% LIHTC funds, leveraging both state and federal funding to provide maximum benefit to the community.

Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) has worked in collaboration with Arlington County and is dedicating 9,000 SF of the sites open space  to a public county park. This park is one piece of a network of parks created in the Rosslyn Highlands Park Coordinated Open Spaces Plan. Added density utilized by this project was envisioned in the 2015 Western Rosslyn Area Plan (WRAPS), which also includes a new state of the art Wilson School directly across the street.

Together Queens Court and the Wilson School create a new gateway to 18th Street Corridor, the future central pedestrian and retail corridor of Rosslyn. The buildings architecture reacts to the variety of conditions surrounding the site, and is conscious of the past, present, and future community in which it is located. Predominantly brick clad, the façade captures the transition in scale from the residential neighborhoods to the west to the business district to the east. The buildings geometry embraces the park generating a synergy between the residential tower and the public open space.
