The Views at Clarendon / V Point Apartments

A mixed-use, reinforced concrete building with a church located on the first two levels and 46 apartments, including 70 affordable housing units, on the upper eight floors.  The project, a collaboration between Arlington County, the First Baptist Church of Clarendon and the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, required the demolition of a major portion of the existing church facility but preserved the structure’s steeple and narthex. 

New facilities for the church, including a sanctuary, were incorporated into the new 10-story, masonry building.  The project also includes a major renovation to the existing  three-story education wing at the rear of the site, as well as a new three-story below-grade parking garage.
