Work that had been stalled on a 10-story office building at one of Arlington's most visible intersections could begin again in a matter of weeks, according to those close to the project.
Developer JBG Company stopped work on 800 North Glebe Road — at the intersection of North Glebe Road and Wilson Boulevard — a few months ago, after Northrop Grumman's decision not to lease space in the building left the company reexamining its financing, according to JBG's Brian Coulter.
But the company is hoping to start work on the building in the next couple of weeks, Coulter adds.
The company built the underground parking garage that will serve the office building as it worked on the new Virginia Tech research center next door. Work on the 800 N. Glebe road building all but stopped this fall, however.
Arlington County granted the developer its building permit for the building in late December. "We don't have a firm start date, but I'm hopeful it could be within the next couple weeks," Coulter says.
