JBG SMITH Receives Final Approval on Two National Landing Towers

JBG SMITH has received final entitlement approvals for 2000 and 2001 S. Bell St. in National Landing in Arlington, VA. The approved plan calls for 758 apartments across two buildings with more than 22,000 square feet of ground floor retail, totaling approximately 723,000 square feet of new development.

“The development will add to the supply of residential units in the area as Virginia Tech expands its Innovation Campus, and Amazon continues to expand HQ2,” said Bryan Moll, EVP of JBG SMITH. “We expect these additional apartments and new ground floor retail options to further establish National Landing as a 24/7 destination.”

JBG SMITH began demolition and other enabling work on the vacant building currently on the site earlier this year and will be fully designed and ready to begin construction as soon as the beginning of 2022, subject to market conditions.
