Project Brief

This new mixed-use development is a brand new community that will add 144 affordable homes in the heart of the Ballston neighborhood in Arlington, as well as new space on the ground floor for the church, and dedicated amenity spaces including a childcare facility and commercial kitchen for food distribution. This development addresses a critical need in a transit-oriented, high-opportunity area, and we’re thrilled to once again partner with Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) to bring much-needed housing to the area.

CUMC Ballston Station includes a 45,000-SF fit-out for church and daycare operations that will occupy the first two concrete levels of the building. Additionally, as markers of local history, the Ball family graves from the 18th and 19th century will be preserved as part of this construction. 

Ben Apfelbaum, DAVIS Vice President, is particularly excited to see this project come to life. “It’s really interesting to have a residential project on top of a church—and we’re doing the church’s fit-out as well,” Apfelbaum said. “We’re even restoring a Tiffany window from 1933 that has been in storage to install in the new building.”
