The redevelopment of the Tellus at 2009 North 14th Street won recognition as the first residential building in Arlington, VA to anticipate a LEED Gold certification.  Located in the heart of Alexandria’s Courthouse District, and just a few blocks from multi-model transit, the 16-story structure combines 254 rental units with ground floor retail and office space.  The Amenity package includes a large fitness center, spacious lounge, business center, feature packed outdoor plaza spaces, and a spectacular rooftop terrace and pool with magnificent views of the Capital and Monuments.

The structure has won bonus density awards and will provide affordable housing and a public art contribution to the community.

Sustainable features include storm water retention for irrigation, low flow plumbing fixtures, a recycling room, and bike racks.  The complex will also obtain 35% of its power from a green source grid.
