Awesome Changes at Ballston Metro Station

The Arlington Connection newspaper recently published an article titled, “Ballston 2020: A look at the redevelopment plans across the west end of Arlington’s Metro corridor.” The article, by Vernon Miles, does a great job at laying out current projects across the area including:

  1. 1000 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA 22201: Marymount University Development
  2. 4230 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22203: Metro Plaza
  3. 4201 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22203: Central United Methodist Church Redevelopment
  4. 4000 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22203: Carpool Redevelopment
  5. 3901 North Fairfax Proposed: Office Redevelopment
  6. 4040 Wilson Blvd Proposed: Tallest Office in Ballston
  7. 750 North Glebe: Residential Redevelopment
  8. 672 Glebe Road: 672 Flats
  9. 4201 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22203: Ballston Exchange – National Science Foundation Redevelopment
  10. 875 N. Glebe Road: Ballston Mall Redevelopment

The Ballston metro renovation is especially interesting as it’s definitely a staple among many of The View’s residents: “The redevelopment starts as soon as the visitor steps off the Metro. A map of the surrounding area with featured locations was recently installed in the Metro plaza, the harbinger of a series of changes planned for the site. The dark plastic awning over the Metro station exit will be renovated and lit. Ballston Metro serves as a hub for bus traffic in the area, and additional bus bays, new bus shelters, and signs with real-time bus information will be added to the site. New kiss-and-ride curb space and bike parking will also be added to the site.​”
