About Project

Gilliam Place is a mixed-use project providing 173 dedicated affordable housing units, community space, retail, and below grade parking.

About Project

This 165,000 SF six-story building consists of woodframe on concrete podium construction. Five floors of residential units surround an exterior courtyard and rear terrace space. This project develops the site on the corner of Columbia Pike and Lincoln Street, previously the home of Arlington Presbyterian Church (APC). APC worked with Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) to ensure the project would promote and benefit the local community. Subtle architectural elements respectfully reference the church, such as reclaimed stone at the main storefront. The retail space has been designed with modern ministry uses in mind to provide APC the opportunity to return to the site.
