Greystar Breaks Ground on 20-story Apartment Building in Arlington

Greystar has broken ground on The Commodore, a 20-story apartment building in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington.

Greystar will oversee development, property management and residential leasing of the 423-unit facility, while CBRE is overseeing commercial leasing. The property is set for a 2023 opening.

“The Commodore will deliver much needed housing and placemaking retail at the seat of Arlington County government and bridge the gap between the Rosslyn and Clarendon Metro Stations,” said John Clarkson, managing director for Greystar. “As the first of two phases, Greystar looks forward to being a vested and long-term owner in this dynamic and strategically important submarket.”

According to Greystar, the Commodore’s strategic placement further serves as a catalyst for growth in the immediate area by offering an inviting and connected living space in Arlington.

The Commodore will sit at the highest point between Rosslyn and Clarendon with views of the National Mall, Georgetown and Northern Virginia. Apartments will range in size from micro-units to three-bedroom penthouses.
