Break out the shiny shovels and trucked-in dirt pile: JBG is breaking ground on a new residential development in Rosslyn Jan. 25. We brought you the news last month that JBG would break ground on its Rosslyn Commons residential development in January, and now that date has officially been set, JBG officials confirmed today.
Rosslyn Commons will be the first, but certainly not the last, building to break ground in the neighborhood in 2011.
Skanska is planning to begin construction on its five-story office building across from the Ray's Hell Burger shopping center in February. And one block behind that, Abdo Development is getting ready to begin construction on its long delayed Gaslight Square condominiums, as WBJ reported earlier this month.
There also could be movement on a residential development planned for the former Dr. Dremo's site in Arlington. Developer ZOM Inc. recently sold part of the project to a private investor and is planning to break ground in the fall of 2011.
