Update: Arlington County, Virginia, Implements Guidance on Office Building Conversion Flexibility

November 24, 2020

Arlington County, Virginia, announced in mid-October 2020 that it would develop administrative guidance for office building conversion site plan applications. In the last few weeks, Arlington County officially implemented this guidance.

It is expected that the guidance will provide property owners planning to repurpose office buildings with a sense of the factors and considerations Arlington County staff will use to evaluate their office conversion site plan applications. This guidance also serves as a resource property owners can add to their toolkit, available and useful if they decide to reposition their property in response to COVID-19.

Any business leaders, real estate developers and community organizers with questions or concerns about what this guidance could mean for individual properties, should feel free to connect with our team.
